WATCH: This is how quickly a fire spreads when you don't water a Christmas tree daily

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) posted a video that serves as a reminder to water your Christmas trees daily.

The video shows a fire on a Christmas tree that wasn't watered daily spread within seconds. In under a minute, the fire spread to the rest of the room.

The video then compares a well-watered tree which burns at a much slower rate.

The NFPA says although Christmas tree fires aren't common, when they do occur, they are more likely to be serious.
