Home Candle Fires


Abstract of a report by Marty Ahrens, National Fire Protection Association' Web site:

Based on data from the U.S. Fire Administration’s (USFA’s) National Fire Incident Reporting System (NFIRS) and the National Fire Protection Association’s (NFPA’s) annual fire department experience survey, NFPA estimates that candles were the heat source in an estimated average of 15,260 reported home fires annually during 2003-2007. These fires caused an average of 166 civilian deaths, 1,289 civilian injuries and $450 million in direct property damage per year. Roughly one-third (36%) of home candle fires started in the bedroom. More than half (55%) of the fires occurred because the candle was too close to something that could burn. Candles used for light in the absence of electrical power appear to pose a particular risk of fatal fire. Home candle fires climbed through the 1990s but have been falling since the 2001 peak. ASTM F15.45 has developed a number of standards relating to candle fire safety.

this sucks balls

this one still sucks!!!

I am sorry you did not like it: do you have a better example?

It is pity. Surely those people had life plans, invested money to have home and everything was on the fire. May God deliver us from such situations.
