We all think we know the most common causes of fire in the home:
The list goes on but one of the unseen causes of house fires is your pet. Yes that's right man's best friends, especially the felines, seem to be rather adept at it according to this news report i read yesterday (http://www.fosters.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20121021/GJLIFESTYLES/121019207/-1/SANNEWS) Animals — including wild ones or pests like rats or insects — are capable of starting a fire any time, but the majority involve a heat source, like a stove, light fixture, candle, embers, or a space heater, Hall said. And over colder holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas, there's often more activity around those sources than usual.
So be alert when it comes to leaving your pets alone at home - are they safe from causing a fire? One way you can make the home safer for your furry friends is to switch to Scentsy Flameless Candles and wax warmers. There is no flame to cause a fur fire, the wax is food grade and safe if your pet is nosey and licks it and the warmers can be replaced if knocked over at lot easier than a burnt out house.
