This video illustrates the danger of using a hand sanitizer near a candle flame. A woman in Texas used the sanitizer on her hands, then lit a candle, causing the vapors to ignite. She received serious burns as a result of the incident. Many household chemicals can be very flammable, and cause burns to unsuspecting victims. As a fire expert, I recommend allowing time for the alcohol-based sanitizer to evaporate prior to using an open flame.
