Description: Caption:
Here, firefighters were shown battling a blaze that was sparked days after hurricane Hugo made landfall north of Charleston, South Carolina in 1989. Candle-related deaths from home fires following hurricanes are more common than the number of deaths related to the direct impact of the hurricane. It is important to have flashlights and extra batteries handy to avoid using open flames as a source of light during power outages.
