Candle Safety

candle safetyCandles are one of the leading causes of house fires. The following guidelines will help keep you out of trouble if you burn candles at home.

Always keep a burning candle within sight. Extinguish all candles when leaving a room or before going to sleep. 

Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire. Keep burning candles away from furniture, drapes, bedding, carpets, books, paper, flammable decorations, etc. 

Keep candles out of the reach of children and pets. Do not place lighted candles where they can be knocked over by children, pets or anyone else. 

Trim candlewicks to ¼ inch each time before burning. Long or crooked wicks cause uneven burning and dripping. 

Always use a candleholder specifically designed for candle use. The holder should be heat resistant, sturdy and large enough to contain any drips or melted wax.
