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.
