She tried to blow it out but the flames shot up, burning her face. She was treated for first- and second-degree burns to her face. The Brawleys said the candle had been burning for around 3 hours and 20 minutes when the incident took place. Instructions for the product state “Do not burn for more than three to four hours at a time,” according to NBC.
