State Fire Marshal’s Office: Keep children away from novelty lighters

Posted: Updated:

The State Fire Marshal's Office has issued a warning about novelty lighters. 
The lighters resemble children's toys and can attract curious kids who may not recognize them as potential fire hazards. 
Tennessee banned the sale of novelty lighters in 2008, but officials say they are still an issue.
The Fire Marshal's Office recommends keeping matches and lighters in a locked drawer. They say to buy and use only child-resistant lighters. 
Never use lighters or matches as a way to amuse children or they may try to do the same. 
Supervise young children closely, even for short periods of time.
