Maybe just investigate a bit before going with the obvious.
While the picture looks like the stereotype of candles inside of a paper lantern, these are nothing like that. There's a whole mini-industry around Chinese lantern making. They can be corded like Christmas lights or battery operated LEDs. I think everybody can rest easy and better spend their time checking their own inside Christmas tree lighting for faults as many people die from that.
