With Halloween quickly approaching, a spooky item is deemed a fire hazard. Haunted House candle holders sold exclusively at Yankee Candles are being recalled by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Authorities caution that people who have bought these candle holders should immediately stop using them for safety reasons. The window panes on the screen can ignite, authorities say, posing a fire hazard.

There have already been three reports of the window pane catching fire, but no injuries have been reported.

The haunted house measures 15 inches high by four inches deep, and can hold up to six tea lights. The tea light candles aren’t involved in the recall.

The candle holders were manufactured in China.
