With Halloween on the horizon, you can be sure there will candles burning. Be safe. Keep flammable materials away from candles, never leave a burning candle unattended.

Below are some facts from the National Fire Prevention Association

  • During 2007-2011 candles caused 3% of home fires, 4% of home fire deaths, 7% of home fire injuries and 6% of direct property damage from home fires.
  • On average, there are 32 home candle fires reported per day.
  • Roughly one-third of these fires started in the bedroom; however, the candle industry found that only 13% of candle users burn candles in the bedroom most often.
  • More than half of all candle fires start when things that can burn are too close to the candle.
