Candle Safety


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.
