1. The CFA warns that small candles can cause big fires, and that leaving them unattended could be disastrous. Users should ensure they always extinguish candles, incense, oil burners and cigarettes before leaving home or going to sleep.

2. It’s important to only use candles, incense and oil burners on a stable, non-combustible surface.

The CFA says it’s also important to keep curtains and other items away from open flames at all times.
