Preventing and Minimizing Fires in Your Home
I personally had an experience at my home a few years ago with a small fire that could have been disastrous. A candle up on a pedestal was not extinguished before going to bed and the candle in the glass container burned to just liquid and broke the glass spilling the hot candle fluid on top of the table cloth starting a big fire. Luckily our fire alarm worked very quickly and let us know where the fire was. I grabbed the fire extinguisher in the bedroom and ran out with the flames shooting to the ceiling. I snuffed the fire out quickly by covering it with a nice tablecloth (cheaper than a new home) my backup was the extinguisher. The only damage we had was a little suet on the ceiling. My dry natural Christmas tree was only a few feet away from the fire. This was a very good lesson to put out all candles, make sure the natural Christmas tree is kept moist and last but not least we have for the most part changed to battery operated candles.
Below is a list of items that I feel are really important and hope you find this useful.

There’s almost nothing more frightening to a homeowner than a fire or the threat of fire. Home fires are often times caused by carelessness, shoddy workmanship, defective equipment and outdated wiring.
