Illuminated Paper Lanterns

Posted in the EaZyTalk Newsletter page on 07/20/2016 09:32:01 on Wednesday, July 20, 2016.

Illuminated paper lanterns are increasing in popularity across    Canada, but they are also increasingly becoming banned because of their classification as a ‘serious fire hazard’. The illuminated paper lanterns are ignited and float upwards in the air, similar to a hot air balloon.

While they are a stunning sight, they are also a huge fire risk. The lanterns are intended to float into the air until the flame is naturally extinguished, however while the material itself is non-flammable if it lands and is still burning, it could create a fire. 

Given that you have no control on where these lanterns land it is advised that you do not use illuminated paper lanterns.
