Halloween Goals: Decorations So Good, Fire Department Was Called

Imagine you take your Halloween decoration game to such a level, the local fire department are called to investigate. That’s exactly what happened to Carmen and Travis Long of Riverside, California and their game-changing Spooky Season spirit.

As you can see from this video, the design of the decorations included flames that were so realistic, neighbors were concerned, and called the local authorities.

‘We do this for the public’s enjoyment,” Carmen told Riverside County Media.

Appreciators of the Long’s are invited to come see the house (from your vehicles and a safe [social] distance) located at Chapman Place and Magnolia Avenue in the city of Riverside. The fire is on display on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the month of October.
