What are the most common causes of fires?

Different types of buildings are at risk for different types of fires. For example, restaurant fires are often started by kitchen or cooking accidents, although arson is also a relatively common cause of restaurant fires. Fires in boarding and care facilities are most commonly caused by cooking accidents. Fires in apartments and dorms are often caused by smoking materials, electrical and heating appliances, and candles.

Many fires can be prevented if hazards are noted and removed during a fire safety inspection. Contact the Austin fire safety inspection professionals of Ace Fire Equipment by calling 512-835-2020 to schedule an inspection for your building.
