Light bulbs in enclosed fixtures are also at a high risk for fire because heat is not able to dissipate as well. Bulbs inside a glass scone or globe can be more prone to fire than other bulbs.
Follow the chart below to make sure you are using the right bulbs.
If a bulb overheats, it can damage a fixture and melt the socket inside of it, starting a fire. Preventing a home fire can be easy if you make it a priority to set aside extra time (and sometimes money) to properly provide your house with the recommended equipment.
