Common Ways Fires Start in Homes
If you’re a homeowner, you should create a plan in the event a fire happens at your home with your family. You should also look at a fire sprinkler training video as a family to understand how a fire suppression system works.
You might be thinking, why is this important to do? Well, there are so many ways a fire can start in a home. The most common ways fires start in homes include a broken appliance, broken electrical equipment, grease fires, kitchen fires, left candles, decorations sitting too close to a fire source or light, smoking inside, misuse of chemicals or gases, faulty fuel supply, lightning, leaving the oven or stove on for a long period of time, and children using matches or lighters when they’re not supposed to.
It’s best to have your electrical equipment and other machinery in your home checked frequently so a preventable fire doesn’t start.
