Hey, if you have an old, dry Christmas tree lying in the alley, near your garage, or possibly close to your wooden back deck, this video may convince you to move it.
A couple of ne’er-do-wells came across a discarded tree in the 3400 block of North Elaine Place this weekend and decided to set it ablaze. And if you’ve never seen a Christmas tree burn, you’re in for a treat.
This video was captured on reader Scott Montgomery’s Nest camera system. He’s lucky that he still has a deck. And, considering that this “prank” unfolded while most people were sleeping at 3:30 a.m., the idiots who set the fire are lucky that it didn’t spread.
