Culling data from NFPA's 2016 "Home Structure Fires" report, a new fact sheet sheds light on the horrific effects of today's home fires. 

 

Did you know that from 2010 to 2014: 

 

  • there were more than 358,000 home structure fires on average each year?
  • home fires caused an astounding 93 percent of all civilian structure fire deaths and 87 percent of all civilian fire injuries?
  • on average, seven people died daily in U.S. home fires?
