Tonight is Halloween Night when many will try to recapture the dark images of days gone by with macabre images, jack-o-lanterns and a variety of medieval-looking decorations. Along with that, people will likely be tempted to use candles and other flame-oriented lighting sources.  Jackson Hole Fire Marshal Kathy Clay urges caution with such holiday ambiance.  She says she strongly encourages eliminating the open flame from the jack-o-lanterns, from the table-tops and from the house entirely. Clay says FEMA reports that throughout the year, there is an average of 42 candle-caused fires each day, and the rate is higher this time of year. Additionally, Clay says those who do more extensive decorating around their doors for the holiday should assure an escape route in the event of an emergency is not compromise.  She says, “Look at where those decorations are and keep at least 32 inches of pathway open so you can get in and out of your house.”
