Never leave burning candles unattended

Candles cause an estimated 15,600 fires in residential structures, 150 deaths, 1,270 injuries and $539 million in estimated direct property damage each year1. In many cases, candles were being used as a light source because power had been shut off or was temporarily out of service. Keep a flashlight and batteries on hand for emergencies to prevent the need to use candles for emergency lighting.

If you do burn candles, always:

  • Use sturdy holders. Keep candles away from children and pets.
  • Extinguish candles before going to bed.
  • Burn candles on even surfaces.
  • Keep candles away from upholstery or window coverings.
