As part of their Put a Freeze on Winter Fires campaign, NFPA and the United States Fire Administration (USFA) want to remind everyone to be careful when using candles this season. According to NFPA’s “Home Candle Fires” report, during 2007-2011, the top three days for home candle fires were Christmas, New Year’s Day, and Christmas Eve. Our candle safety information, Candle Safety Tips sheet, and my new video on candle safety offer suggestions for enjoying candles safely.
