RNC fire investigators believe candles contributed to a residential fire on Veteran’s Square in Corner Brook about 6:30 p.m. Saturday.


The single dwelling structure in the city's east side was unoccupied at the time of the fire and was without power due to a power outage due to inclement weather.

There were no injuries reported in the fire, however, a family pet cat was found dead.

 The residence sustained extensive damage.

    Due to the recent power outages I thought that this great Fire Prevention idea would interest you. We will have Power Failures – People will Burn Candles I am the first to agree that flashlights and light sticks are the preferred form of emergency lighting. The difficulty with most homes and emergency kits is their ability to provide lighting on a long term basis -24/48/72 hours or 10 days. Each pack contains 100 - 10 hour candles. This is why Kevin’s Kandles are an ideal tool for emergency and disaster preparedness. - 10,000+ accidental candle fires are reported in the USA each year. Kevin's Kandles greatly reduce this risk for your family and your community. They help eliminate the "Stupid Factor" when people run out of batteries during extended power failures and "get creative" with their illumination. In North America, 4% of residential fires are candle related. A majority of the deaths and injuries occur during power failures and in houses where the electricity has been disconnected. - Again, this is why Kevin’s Kandles are such a great tool for Emergency and Disaster Preparedness. They are Much Safer than traditional candles, Convenient, Inexpensive and Environmentally Friendly. If a Kevin's Kandle is left unattended - it will go out; if it is tipped over - it will go out! -Each pack from Kevin's Kandles Inc., a Montreal Canada based company contains 100 - 10 hour candles. A carton measures 15 x 15 x 20”, weighs 25 pounds and contains 500 packs of Kevin’s Kandles. That’s a potential of 50,000 - 10 hour candles! Distributors needed in your area.
