Use of Candleholders
Candles should not be placed at any place. It can cause spread of wax and there might be some sensitive stuff that can catch fire quickly. So, it is always recommended to use heat-resistant candleholders. The holders should also be wide enough to catch the wax to prevent it from spreading around. The candleholders themselves should be placed at a sturdy and solid place. An uneven place can cause them to fall and there is a high risk of fire catching anything nearby and spreading quickly. It is essential that candleholders are placed in a well ventilated area, but do not expose them directly to drafts.
Cut Wick Down
Allowing candle to burn with a log wick can be a cause of an uneven burning and there is a risk of fire. It is better cut the wick down to one-fourth inch. This will allow candle to burn at an even pace and not cause a fire risk.
Discard Candle Early
Do not allow a candle to be burned down completely. It can be a risk of fire. Generally, it is recommended to discard a candle about two inches before it is burned out completely. Put it off and dispose it of at a safe place.

Whenever your are out of a place where a candle is burning for a longer period of time, put it off before leaving. Do not leave a candle burning unattended, especially if it can be accessed by children. Even it is not in reach of children, you must not leave the candle unattended. It poses a higher risk of fire.
