The number one leading cause of electrical fires is caused by installing a bulb with a wattage that is too high for the lamps and light fixtures. Experts say that it is mandatory to check the maximum recommended bulb wattage on any lighting fixture or lamp and never go over the recommended amount.

We all know that light bulbs heat up when used and light bulbs that are in enclosed fixtures are also at 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.
