Suggestions to help prevent home fires

(HealthDay News) -- The holidays are a prime time for home fires spurred by lit candles or fireplaces.

To help prevent such fires, the U.S. National Safety Council suggests:

  • Don't leave a candle burning in any room unsupervised.
  • Make sure lit candles are out of a child's reach.
  • Use lit candles only on surfaces that are sturdy and stable.
  • Keep lit candles away from holiday trees, curtains and flammable objects.
  • Don't put wrapping paper, tree limbs or wreaths in your fireplace to burn.
  • Thoroughly clean and inspect all fireplaces and chimneys annually.
