Scary Fun But Be Safe On Halloween

DETROIT (WWJ) – Halloween is supposed to be scary and frightening. But it also warrants some safety tips.

WWJ Newsradio 950’s Gary Lundy reports on some important and often overlooked safety tips to keep in mind this Halloween.

State Fire Marshal Ronald Farr says there’s been a significant increase in home fires and burn-related injuries in the past few years, caused by candles starting home fires, decorations, and Halloween costumes.

Farr says people should also be careful with candles inside pumpkins, which can get too hot on the bottom, and start fires.

And its also a good idea for all the little ghosts and goblins to carry a flashlight with them, as they walk along those dark sidewalks and up on those scary porches to grab those goodies.
