To all that burn candles in your homes… please, please be very careful…do not leave them unattended. My sister almost lost her house yesterday. Luckily her husband was home, when the smoke detector went off. When he ran into the breakfast room the flames were already up to the ceiling, a small section of the rug was on fire, and the whicker table and whicker couch were burning. He used a fire extinguisher to put out the fire. There was minimal damage but it could have been much worse. What they believe happened was in her rush to find her purse she was throwing around clothes and accidentally knocked over the jar candle.
