Try using a cardboard box as a target, or if you're using the fire arrows, only use them outside, somewhere safe where nothing can catch fire, and keep some water close by just in case. Make sure you don't hold the fire arrow in the crossbow for too long so you don't set the stick or bottle top on fire.
