The Christmas season is a time of great joy. It can also be a time of tragedy. House fires always seem to make the news this time of the year, and they are often started by carelessness. Fire safety is important year-round, but even more so at this time of the year. Members of the New Bedford Fire Department join WBSM's Jim Phillips to discuss fire safety in the home, and what to watch out for during the holiday season.

Townsquare Sunday with Jim Phillips can be heard each Sunday at 6 a.m. on WBSM 1420 and WBSM.com. Townsquare Sunday is a weekly public affairs program highlighting non-profits and community organizations in the Greater New Bedford area.
