Fire Prevention Week: Flammable Halloween Decorations

By Rankin's Hardware & Building Supplies | Oct 13, 2016

Did you know? Decorations are the first thing to ignite in 900 reported home fires each year. Two of every five of these fires were started by a candle.

Dried flowers, cornstalks and crepe paper are highly flammable. Keep these and other decorations well away from all open flames and heat sources, including light bulbs, and heaters.

Remember to keep exits clear of decorations, so nothing blocks escape routes.
