ACCORDING TO THE U-S FIRE ADMINISTRATION, OVER TWO-THOUSAND PEOPLE ARE INJURED BY IN-HOME, HOLIDAY-RELATED FIRES, EACH YEAR.  ACE HARDWARE OFFERS THESE TIPS, TO HELP YOU HAVE A SAFE HOLIDAY-SEASON.  FIRST, CHECK YOUR OLD HOLIDAY-LIGHTS FOR FRAYED WIRES, BARE SPOTS, OR EXCESSIVE KINKS; THEY'RE SIGNS THAT THE LIGHTS MAY HAVE ELECTRICAL DAMAGE--AND COULD CAUSE A FIRE.  DON'T LINK MORE THAN THREE STRANDS OF LIGHTS TOGETHER--AND USE AN EXTENSION-CORD--BEFORE PLUGGING THEM INTO AN OUTLET. THE WOODS 24-HOUR TIMER CAN HELP YOU MAKE SURE THAT YOU NEVER FORGET TO TURN OFF THE LIGHTS, WHEN THEY'RE UNATTENDED.  LIKEWISE, IF YOU PURCHASE AN ELECTRIC RADIATOR, BUY ONE WITH AN AUTO SHUT-OFF, TO HELP PREVENT HOUSE-FIRES.  FINALLY, YOU SHOULD HAVE AT LEAST ONE SMOKE-ALARM ON EVERY FLOOR OF YOUR HOME--SUCH AS FIRST ALERT'S CARBON-MONOXIDE- AND FIRE-ALARM; CHECK YOUR ALARMS MONTHLY--AND MAKE SURE THAT THEY HAVE FRESH BATTERIES.  FOR MORE HELPFUL TIPS, VISIT "ACE-HARDWARE"-DOT-COM.
