The trick-or-treat season is here, one of the most anticipated times of the year for kids. While most Halloween activities have gone virtual due to the pandemic, some people still put up Halloween home decorations to celebrate the holiday. Unfortunately, the same decorations have made Halloween a holiday with an increasing number of home fires.
