Candle with Care

The VRFA encourages you to use candles with care to prevent home fires. Consider choosing battery-operated flameless candles which can look, smell and feel like real candles, but lack the risk of fire and injury. If you choose to use lit candles, use a holder that is sturdy and fire resistant, such as thick glass, ceramic or metal. Keep candles at least 12 inches away from anything that can burn and always extinguish candles before leaving a room or going to bed. For more information, contact our Public Education Division at 253-288-5800.
