INDIANAPOLIS (RTV6) -- Menards has recalled 1,800 pre-lit artificial Christmas trees just one week before the holiday.

Company officials said the lights may overheat, start a fire or cause electric shock.

The trees were sold for about $300 at Menards in September and November.

Store officials said the recall includes the Enchanted Forest Twinkling Pine Tree.

The trees may be returned to the store for a refund.
