As Christmas approaches, Putting up Christmas decorations and planning out gifts is one of the stressful times of the year. However, during the Christmas season, the 50-foot tall tree had been ceremonially lit days earlier during a broadcast. The Police said that a man was in custody in connection with the blaze. The Police said that security at the headquarters had observed the man climbing the structure before the fire broke out around 12:15 am. The man was arrested and later charged with seven counts, including

criminal mischief, reckless endangerment and arson. The fire did not cause any severe implications or injuries; the Police said on Wednesday that the authorities were still investigating the cause of the fire. However, the spectacle surprised onlookers, including one of the network's hosts, who announced the fire in a live broadcast. The fire happened in the Fox Square in New York outside Fox headquarters," and it was on fire. A few minutes later, smoke can be seen in the live feed with the Christmas tree burning.
