Mini light-bar wiring issues?

I have a mini-light bar Whelen that I use for emergency response. It first came with a cigarette plug but the previous owner had it burn out on him and he replaced it with a toggle switch. Which worked perfectly. My question is what type of wire could I use to wire this in my vehicle ?
Its a halogen 12v DC, Any suggestions on what type of wire I should use. I have a toggle switch that goes from On to Off


Answer:

LarMarine83 brings up a very valid point about switch and relay. I suspect that the lightbar you have does not have a very high amp draw due to the fact that it originally had a cigarette lighter plug. The bad thing there is that it did burn out so it appears that the amp draw was enough to burn it up and this most likely occurred after it had been on for a while. We (I am an Engine Captain) always use relays when running wiring for emergency lighting. I would suggest using at least 14 guage wire and a relay rated for not less than 10 amps. Hope this helps.
