Albany-- While costumes are cute, they can also be dangerous.

Fire officials say although most costumes are flame retardant, parents should do a double check to make sure. Masks should also be checked to make sure kids are able to see out of them. Parents should also accompany kids at all times. Trick-or-treaters should walk in groups, stay in familiar neighborhoods and very importantly, know where you're getting your candy from.

"Mom and Dad ought to check it and make sure that it's alright. Make sure it's wrapped, that it's nothing altered about it and if in doubt throw it out," says Albany Fire Department Battalion Chief James Sanders.

Parents might also want to consider trick-or-treating in public places like the mall. Drivers be extra cautious on Halloween with extra pedestrian traffic.
