If you look at the left side of the screen you will see a small candle on the table in front of the window. Watch as the breeze blows the curtains over the candle for just a couple of seconds and the destructive consequences. Please be careful where you place your candles and never leave them unattended.

DO YOU KNOW HOW TO USE YOUR FIRE EXTINGUISHER?
There is an acronym that is used as a reminder for those who don't know how to use a fire extinguisher. The acronym is easy to remember and very helpful. The acronym is...
P - PULL
A - AIM
S - SQUEEZE
S - SWEEP
PULL out the pin located on the side of the handle of the extinguisher, AIM towards the area of the fire, SQUEEZE the handle, and SWEEP back and fourth at the base of the fire.
