Be careful - never leave candles unattended
- Make sure candles are held firmly in a fireproof holder, on a stable surface where they won’t be knocked over.
- Don’t place them on top of or near television sets, curtains or other fabrics that can set alight.
- Ensure candles are extinguished before leaving a room or going to bed – never leave burning candles unattended.
- Children shouldn’t be left alone with lit candles.
