1) B - The Bedroom - This can be attributed to the fact that many people fall asleep with burning candles, or they put many candles too close to flamable objects to create a romantic setting.
2) B - Every Hour - Statistics show that candle fires are reported almost every hour. This rate has risen in recent years, due to the fact that more and more people are burning candles.
3) C - December - This month is the most deadly and is probably due to people using candles in decorations or festivities without proper safety methods.
4) B - One Foot - This is the safe distance, and although it may seem like a far distance, any closer and some materials or objects can heat up from the candle flame(s) and eventually catch fire.
5) C - A long handled candle snuffer - This is the safest way to extinguish a candle flame. Sometimes blowing it out can cause wax to splash or spill, so it is not recommended. If you don't have a candle snuffer on hand, you can blow out your candles by placing your finger in front of your lips as you blow softly....this disperses the flow of air and extinguishes the flame without splashing the wax with a hard blow.
