Facts on Home Fire Causes
Every year U.S. fire departments respond to nearly 2 million fires, with three-quarters of them occurring in residences. Fire costs our national billions of dollars very year in property loss and thousands of lives lost.
The place where Americans feel safest -- at home -- is the very place where we are at greatest risk from fire. If Americans knew more about fire prevention and better understood how to react quickly and sensibly when fire breats out, we could greatly reduce fire deaths.

These apply to charcoal grills, LP-gas grills, natural gas grills, hibachis, smokers, or any appliance that uses an open flame to cook. These precautions apply when grills are in use and until they have cooled.
