Candle Fire in Banker’s Hill Bedroom?

Several Candles are shown lit up in a bedroom. Never leave a burning candle unattended in San Diego!

Banker’s Hill Bedroom Candle Fire Blunder

My bedroom was transformed into a spa-like setting when I lit all of the candles. Unfortunately, a gust of wind sent my gauzy curtain into the flame of a candle and started a fire in my pretty bedroom. Fortunately, we were able to put the fire out and call SERVPRO® of Centre City/Uptown.

Candles' flames create ambiance, but they can be dangerous if improperly used. Here are some candle safety tips from the National Fire Protection Association:

  • Use candle holders that are sturdy and won’t tip over easily
  • Put candle holders on a sturdy, uncluttered surface
  • Light candles carefully
  • Keep your hair and any loose clothing away from the flame
  • Don’t burn a candle all the way down. Put it out before it gets too close to the holder or container.
  • Never use a candle if oxygen is used in the home
  • Have flashlights and battery-powered lighting ready to use during a power outage. Never use candles.
