1.   Make sure  the Diya or candle rests securely on a surface which will not melt or burn.
 
2.   Keep candles  a safe distance from curtains, furniture and decorations.
 
3.   Clothing (especially saris, chunis/chunris and dupattas) can be very flammable. Keep your clothing away from flames and also be careful if you have long hair.
 
4.   Treat fireworks with great caution and always read the instructions.
 
5.   Never leave cooking unattended. Fires often start when your attention stops.
