Children sometimes can cause house fires when they play with candles left unattended. Help keep your child safe by keeping these tips in mind:
- Keep candles high out of reach of children.
- Never leave a child unattended in a room with a candle. Children should not sleep in rooms with lit candles.
- Don't allow children or teens to have candles in their bedrooms.
- Store candles, matches, and lighters up high and out of children's sight and reach, preferably in a locked cabinet.
