Causes of Preventable Fires

Many burn injuries in the United States are caused by circumstances that could be prevented if appropriate fire safety measures were followed or enforced. The incorrect use of fire protection, such as alarm systems and smoke detectors, can also be a contributing factor to burn victims suffering preventable injuries. Below are avoidable causes of fire cited by the U.S. Fire Administration:

  • Smoking
  • Cooking
  • Arson
  • Defective electrical wiring
  • Portable heaters
  • Incorrectly stored hazardous materials
