Keep an eye on those Christmas candles
Published on 12/24/2018

​Twelve percent of home fires caused by candles will occur in December — the combination of increased candle use and flammable decorations isn’t a good one, especially if candles aren’t used safely. Never leave candles burning in a room you are not in, or while you’re sleeping. Clear the area before lighting a candle, making sure that the flame will be contained, that there’s nothing flammable nearby, and that the candle is safely out of reach for children. If you have plans for a fire in your fireplace, check your chimney to make sure it’s clean. For more tips, visit

​El doce por ciento de los incendios en el hogar causados ​​por velas ocurrirán en diciembre. La combinación de un mayor uso de velas y decoraciones inflamables no es buena, especialmente si las velas no se usan de manera segura. Nunca deje velas encendidas en una habitación en la que no esté alguien o mientras esté durmiendo. Limpie el área antes de encender una vela, asegurándose de que la llama esté contenida, de que no haya nada inflamable cerca y de que la vela esté fuera del alcance de los niños. Si tiene planes de encender su chimenea, revise su chimenea para asegurarse de que esté limpia. Para obtener más consejos, visite​.
