Is Fire Resistant Clothing Safe Around Candles and Flames?

You answer the phone at work and it is a nurse calling from the hospital. Your wife just arrived by ambulance. You hear the words “third degree burns over 60 percent of her body” but you can’t understand what happened.

You arrive at the hospital and learn she was getting ready to take a bath surrounded by scented candles like she has many times before. But somehow as she leaned in over the tub, and started to remove her nightgown, the fabric touched a candle and caught fire. The entire garment was immediately engulfed in flames.
