Had candle burning in bathroom for 2 1/2 hours - smoke alarm went off.I went into bathroom to find candle engulfed in 6 inch flames.

Doused with water to put out but that made the candle explode and flames burst to about 5 feet high. Hot wax burst everywhere which caused 2nd degree burns on my left hand and more minor burns on my right hand, stomach, face and neck.

Bathroom cabinet damaged in two spots and wax all over floor counter and mirror and smoke stains on ceiling and walls.It was a 3 wick Lavendar Chamomile Candle in blue glass and was in one of their metal decorative sleeves. 2e156a5

No candle should be burnt for 2 1/2 hours nor should it be left unattended, when lit. Thats just plain common sense.

Candles state on the bottom do not burn more than 3-4 hours at a time. Should not leave unattended but 2 1/2 hours is Not too long.
