Candles and Housefires

Candle fires are more common around the holidays because more people use candles and decorations are often near them. Candle fires peak on Christmas Day, followed by New Year's Day and Christmas Eve. Home candle fires are also more common during the winter months.

Helpful Resources

Candle fires usually happen when a candle is left unattended, abandoned, or inadequately controlled. One in four times, something that catches fire easily was left too close to the flame.
