Candles are safe products, but unless they are used safely and watched carefully, they can lead to an accidental fire.
Candles cause more accidental fires in residences and business structures than just about anything else. It is important to be reminded of safe candle use practices in order to reduce these incidents. These are just a few:
- put candles out before you leave the room
- keep burning candles at least 12 inches away from furniture, drapes or clothing
- always use a steady candleholder on a level surface
- don’t burn candles all the way down
