 January Fire Safety


According to the U.S. Fire Administration, winter is the peak time of year for home candle fires. At peak times, thirteen percent (13%) of home candle fires begin with decorations compared to four percent (4%) the rest of the year. On average, 42 home candle fires are reported every day. More than half of these fires start when something that could burn, such as furniture, mattresses or bedding, curtains, or decorations is too close to candles. Twenty percent (20%) of candle fires start due to unattended or abandoned candles. Falling asleep is a factor in twelve percent (12%) of home candle fires and thirty six percent (36%) of the associated deaths.

The Moreno Valley Fire Department Offers the Following Candle Safety Tips: Put candles in sturdy metal, glass or ceramic holders.

  • Consider using battery-operated or electric flameless candles and fragrance warmers, which can look, smell and feel like real candles - without the flame.
  •  If you do use candles, ensure they are in sturdy metal, glass or ceramic holders and placed where they cannot be easily knocked down.
  • Avoid using candles in bedrooms and sleeping areas.
  • Extinguish candles after use and before going to bed.
  • Keep candles at least 12 inches from anything that can burn.
  • Keep candles out of the reach of children and pets.
  • Set a good example by using matches, lighters and fire carefully.
  • Children should never be allowed to play with matches, lighters or candles.
  • Always use a flashlight - not a candle - for emergency lighting.
  • NEVER leave burning candles unattended!
