Candles cause fires

They also burn too!

Our candle top tips:

  • Always put candles on heat resistant surfaces, ideally in a proper holder
  • Be careful with tea lights, which can easily melt plastic including TV’s
  • Be aware of other items around candles that might easily catch fire
  • Keep candles out of draughts
  • Put candles out before you go to sleep and if leaving a room
  • Put candles out with a spoon or snuffer rather than blowing them out
