Make sure the smoke alarms are working where you live. Check the batteries at least once a year. Stand by your pan and never leave your cooking unattended – it’s the number one cause of home fires.

The data:

Between 2013 and 2022, an average of 7,200 young people a year between the ages of 13 and 24 went to the emergency room with injuries related to home fire incidents. Each year, an average of 100 people aged 13 to 24 tragically die in residential structure fires. Residential structure fires include not only home fires, but all residential structure type buildings including hotels, dorms, barracks, apartments, and other living structures. These estimates include child-play fires – fires where a child intentionally set a fire during play – but do not include fires that were set intentionally otherwise, such as arson.
