Why does a balloon taken near a candle burst

A candle's flame produces heat. When a balloon is taken near a candle, the heat causes the air molecules in the balloon to vibrate, or take more place. Hence the balloon's size increases. When the point till it can stretch exceeds, the balloon bursts.

Air expands when nearer to heat.If you bring a blown up balloon near a burning candle it will burst because of the air expanding inside it.
