Ace Hardware Stores sold Avante Yarde Decorative Glaze Outdoor Candles.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the wax can catch fire, resulting in high flame.

Some people have burned their hands trying to extinguish the flame.

The recalled candles were imported by The Hayes Company.

The item number is 18134.

They were sold at Ace Hardware Stores from February 2006 through June 2007.

Return candles to the store where purchased for a refund.
