Common Causes of Winter Fires

  • Flammable objects near flames: Many winter fires start because fire sources are too close to flammable items. For example, candles and space heaters placed near clothing, curtains, or other flammable objects. Careless candle placement is a leading cause of fires in the United States each year.
  • Unattended fireplaces: People often forget to extinguish their fireplaces before leaving home or going to sleep at night, resulting in accidents.
  • Overloaded electrical outlets: Heating appliances require a significant amount of electricity. Plugging multiple heating appliances into a single outlet can cause a fire.
  • Non-functioning smoke detectors: Non-working smoke detectors are a major cause of fire escalation because they fail to provide early warning signs.

How to Prevent Winter Fire Accidents

By taking careful steps and following certain precautions, you can avoid winter fire incidents without disrupting your daily routine:

  • Install carbon monoxide and smoke alarms, as well as other fire detection systems, and regularly check that they are functioning properly.
  • Place fire extinguishers in high-risk areas such as the kitchen, garage, and living room, and ensure that all household members know how to use them.
