Fire has captured the imagination of men since the beginning of civilization. Combine that with the curiosity of a child and you have a deadly combination.
Between the years 2007 and 2011, an average of 7,100 home structure fires per year were caused by children play with lighters and matches. Sadly, every year an average of 77 people die in their homes because of these fires and another 750 are sent to the emergency room because of injuries. This causes approximately $172 million in property damage annually.
