CAPE CORAL, Fla. -- The Cape Coral Fire Department is getting into the holiday spirit while reminding you that fires are preventable.
For the seventh year, firefighters at the station on Santa Barbara Boulevard hung a wreath covered in green lights. Those will be changed to red every time a preventable fire happens.
Overall, the goal is to keep the wreath green for the next month.
Preventable fires include things like holiday decorations, candles, even cooking.
