Top causes of home fires & how to prevent them.
Given the current condition with the virus, we find ourselves spending more and more time at home. Although that gives us the opportunity to spend more time with our loved ones, there’s also a silent threat - the threat of fire.
Over 3,121 homes are lost to fire every year. Some of it was just structural damage, and some worst. Resulting in the loss of lives.
A fire is a threat that should be taken seriously. With that said, here’s the top causes of home fires & how to prevent them.
1. Cooking related fire
This comes as no surprise to us all. Cooking gas, high heats. The best place for a fire to start.
Never leave cooking unattended and always keep an eye on your microwave whenever you’re using it.
The easiest way to put out a fire in your kitchen is using a home-friendly (and also car-friendly btw) extinguisher or having a fire blanket nearby.
2. Electrical fires
We all have that one plug point that we use up to the max! Electrical faults in home wiring is one of the major causes of electrical fires in homes.
Don’t overload plug points and ensure that you have a smoke detector installed to act as an early warning system against a fire.
