Health Tip: Campfire Safety
(HealthDay News) -- Though a campfire is a great place for sing-a-longs and s'mores, it also is prone to mishaps.
Each year, campfire accidents send thousands of people to the emergency room, says the National Fire Protection Association.
The association encourages:
Keep campfires 25 feet away from structures.
Avoid starting campfires on windy, dry days.
Watch children and pets while the fire is burning.
Attend to the fire at all times.
Always have a source of water nearby.
Make sure the fire is completely out before leaving the site.
