Candle Safety
Candles can be both enjoyable and soothing; however they can often be deadly.

The Burnsville Fire Department offers these tips while using candles:

  • Place candles on stable furniture in sturdy holders, designed to catch dripping wax.
  • Never leave a candle unattended.
  • Keep candles away from anything that can burn.
  • Do not let children or teens have candles in their bedrooms.
  • Always extinguish candles carefully when done.
