A coroner has issued a warning regarding unattended candles, following a man’s death in a house fire, Stuff reports. Henele Maafu Halatanu,​ 55, died from soot inhalation and carbon monoxide poisoning, when his Pukekohe rental went up in flames in July 2018. Further investigations by Fire and Emergency NZ revealed the fire was started by an unattended candle, which Halatanu had used for lighting as the house was not connected to power.
