    Wow, just last month I had a small scented candle in a glass holder do just that. The glass exploded after the wax had turned to liquid and the whole thing was in flames on my coffee table but I luckily had it on another plate. It was rather alarming. I don't know what brand it was but I bought one of them in Maine when visiting my Brother and bought another here in my state at Dillards during the holidays. I gave one as a gift. My youngest girl also bought some but I have already warned her about what happened to mine.
