Its that time of year again where we crave the glorious glow and wonderful smell of a candle to warm the home and soul!
As comforting as candles are, they are still one of the top causes of smoke and/or fire damage in homes and businesses. That is why almost every fall I do a blog on this topic, anything I can do to help keep our Minneapolis neighborhoods and all surrounding communities informed! 😉
Not only are candles one of the top sources for a home fire but roughly one-third (36%) of home candle fires start in bedrooms. Okay my friends, this is NOT what they mean by turning up the heat in the bedroom!!! These fires caused 32% of the associated deaths and 47% of the associated injuries related to fires. Falling asleep with a candle burning was a factor in 11% percent of the home candle fires and 30% of the associated deaths. On average, 25 home candle fires are reported per day. That’s crazy! Now you understand the importance for repeating this subject! Safety First!
