The Deadly Rage of Fire

March 14, 2013

The threat of fire exists in every room of your home or business, from frayed wires to kitchen accidents to malfunctions in machinery. In a matter of seconds, fire can consume a room and spread quickly throughout a premises.

Consider the following statistics

  • Home fires are the fifth leading unintentional cause of injury and death in the United States, behind motor vehicle crashes, falls, poisoning by solids or liquids, and drowning.
  • Home fires rank as the first cause of death for children under the age of 15 at home.
  • Roughly 80 percent of all fire deaths occur where people sleep, such as in homes, dormitories, barracks, or hotels. The majority of fatal fires occur when people are likely to be less alert, such as nighttime sleeping hours.
  • Two of every five fires that kill young children are started by children playing with fire.
  • Approximately 900 older adults die in fires annually.
