Nothing says romance on Valentine’s Day like dinner by candlelight, but it’s easy to lose sight of what’s really important when you’re busy setting the perfect ambiance – preventing home fires. According to the NFPA, candles were the cause of approximately 9,300 home fires, 86 deaths, 837 injuries and $374 million in property damage between 2009 and 2013.
While candles themselves can be completely harmless and absolutely delightful, if left unattended they have the potential to ignite a house fire that can turn your romantic holiday into a total nightmare. So, before you let cupid distract you, remember to keep these simple safety tips in mind.
- Never leave candles unattended.
- Keep them away from flammable objects.
- Limit the number of candles you use.
- Burn them out of reach of children and pets.
- Use sturdy candle holders.
- Keep your wicks trimmed.
- Double-check your smoke detectors.
