Candle Fire Safety Checklist

    Many things in your home can catch on fire if they touch a flame or something hot.
    Any open flame is dangerous. If possible, use battery-operated candles. If you use candles in your home, prevent a fire by making sure the below statements are true in your home!
    • Put candles in sturdy holders.
    • Place candles at least 12 inches away from anything that can burn.
    • Make sure candles cannot be reached by children or pets.
    • Blow out all candles if you leave the room, get sleepy, or go to bed.
