If you celebrate Hanukkah and light a menorah in your apartment, don't forget that burning candles pose a fire risk. To lower your risk, it's best to place a nonflammable surface (such as aluminum foil sheets) underneath your menorah before you begin lighting candles each night.
This way, even if a candle you thought was secure falls out of your menorah while it's unattended, it won't roll onto a flammable surface, which could lead to a serious fire.
