Keep lit candles at least 12 inches from anything that can burn.
Don't use lit candles in bedrooms, bathrooms, and sleeping areas. Blow them out when you leave a room or home, or when you go to bed.
When you use candles, place them in a sturdy, safe candle holder that will not burn or tip over. Consider using battery-operated flameless candles.
Use flashlights, not candles if you have a power outage.
