Candles are always beautiful, and they are especially abundant during the holiday season.



The top five days for home candle fires are: Christmas, Christmas Eve, New Year's Day, Halloween and December 23rd. During 2003-2007 U.S. fire departments responded to an average of 15,260 home fires started by candles per year. These fires caused an annual average of 166 deaths,  1,289 injuries, and $450 million in direct property damage. Candles caused 4% of reported home fires, 6% of home fire deaths, 10% of home fire injuries, and 7% of direct property damage during this period. We all love the beauty of candles but it is important to be careful.

So, as we get ready to enter this season, it is very important to keep safety in mind.

Candle Safety:

- Always keep a burning candle within sight - never leave it unattended.

- Never burn a candle near any material that can catch fire.

- Always use a candleholder specifically designed for candles and place on a stable, heat-resistant surface.

- Make sure a candle is completely extinguished and is no longer glowing before leaving it.

- Never use a candle as a night light.
