Most fires within the residence occur in the kitchen while cooking and are the leading cause of injuries from fire.
Common causes of fires at night are carelessly discarded cigarettes, sparks from fireplaces without spark screens or glass doors, and heating appliances left too close to furniture or other combustibles.
These fires can be particularly dangerous because they may smolder for a long period before being discovered by sleeping residents. All of which can be avoided by following the safety tips and precautions below.
