Steps to Avoid Fire Accidents in the Garage
February 17, 2022
There is no joking around when it comes to garage safety. As always, it is better to be safe than sorry. Garage fires cause more deaths, injuries, and dollar losses than fires that begin in any other part of your house. The numbers don’t lie. Every year, there are 6,600 garage fires in homes, which lead to 30 deaths, 400 injuries, and $457 million in property loss. One- and two-family homes comprise 93 percent of these fires. The most common reasons for the fires are due to damaged wires, overloading electrical outlets, and shorts in wires.
