Now that Christmas has come and gone, the fire danger posed by your tree is only getting more potent as it continues to dry out.

The Phoenix Fire Department and A to Z Equipment demonstrated Tuesday exactly what can happen to your dried-out tree -- and your home -- in less than a minute.

The combination of your dry tree and hot string lights strewn all over it can set your living room ablaze in less than 30 seconds.

The City of Phoenix's website has information about where and how you can recycle your tree.
