Every year an average of five people die in house fires and more than 1,200 fires start in the home. Lighters, matches and candles are a common cause of fires in the home.
These fires cause thousands of dollars damage and have contributed to the death and injury of a number of people – including children.
Most of these fires are accidental and preventable.
