Fire Safety Reminder

February 20, 2017 2:15 PM

 

FIRE SAFETY

Dear Neighbors:

Sherman Terrace Structure Fire (there was one fatality).

The Madison Fire Department's Fire Investigation Division has determined that the fire which took place at 6 Sherman Terrace, Unit #2, on Sunday, February 19, was accidental in nature and resulted from unattended candle use in the master bedroom. Estimated damage to the unit is approximately $20,000.

This tragic incident serves as a reminder to all of us to use candles safely and to never leave candles unattended. Furthermore, the following safety tips could be instrumental in preventing a candle-related fire in your home:

 *   Never burn candles on or near any object that could catch fire;
 *   Keep candles out of reach of children and pets;
 *   Use a candleholder specifically designed for candle use;
 *   Avoid drafts, vents, or air currents;
 *   Extinguish your candles before leaving the room or going to bed.

Please review these candle safety tips courtesy of National Candle Association<http://candles.org/fire-safety-candles/> and the National Fire Protection Agency<http://www.nfpa.org/public-education/by-topic/top-causes-of-fire/candles>.
