How to avoid fire hazards

These paper lanterns are very fascinating and you can make them with the help of your family or friends. Use this time to highlight the fire hazards associated with open flames and place special emphasis on children who love to play with fire. Lock your pets away as their curious natures could lead to burnt snouts. Never place the lanterns near objects that might catch fire, for instance your curtains, garden furniture, dried out wood or near dry grass as the candles may ignite the bags and cause the small fire to spread quickly.
Modern lanterns made from artificial materials are serious fire hazards when the electrical lights inside them are removed and replaced with candles. Refrain from doing so at all times as a disaster can almost be guaranteed.
