Candle fires are the fourth leading cause of campus fires behind cooking, arson and smoking. The U.S. Fire Administration reports that 20 percent of university housing fires in bedrooms are started by candles. Despite the fact that candles are now banned at most colleges, candles remain a key ignition source for campus fires. More than half of all candle fires occur when a combustible material is too close to the candle, with the most common materials being bedding and curtains. Falling asleep was a factor in a quarter of candle fire fatalities — extinguish all candles before going to sleep.
