Michaels Arts & Crafts stores recalled silver tree candle holders after six reports of the Christmas decorations catching fire, causing minor burns to one consumer, said the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission.

The candle holders are recalled in both the U.S. and Canada, CPSC said. Health Canada said the tealight holders are not properly aligned and the tealight flames can touch the bottoms of the holders above, creating a fire risk. In the U.S. there have been five reports of the candle holders catching fire, with one consumer getting burned by hot wax. In Canada there has been a single report of the decoration igniting and no one was hurt.

This holiday season has seen several candle recalls including tapers from Yankee Candle and pillar candles from Bed Bath & Beyond -- both made by the same company for the same reason.
