CANDLE FIRE SAFETY
While we all enjoy beautiful and aromatic candles during the holiday seasons, we also must recognize that they can be equally dangerous.
The Amador Fire Protection District recommends the following:
• Never leave a burning candle unattended.
• Do not burn candles in a room where you are likely to fall asleep.
• Keep candles out of reach of children and pets.
• Maintain a minimum of 1 foot clearance from combustible materials.
• Light candles with care. Keep clothing and hair away from the open flame.
• Place the candle on a stable, sturdy holder.
• Do not rely on candles for emergency lighting. Use a flashlight.
