We never think tragedies will happen to us, but Utah house fires are a real threat. Fire spreads very fast, but smoke inhalation can be more deadly than anything. At Good Guys Injury Law, we are dedicated to your safety and protection. This post outlines some of the common causes of house fires and how to prevent them.

Top Causes of Utah House Fires

Knowing what causes a fire can help you prevent one. The following factors are some of the most common roots of Utah house fires.

  • Cooking Equipment and Barbecues
  • Heating Equipment
  • Smoking Indoors
  • Electrical Equipment and Wiring
  • Candles
  • Holiday Decorations

How to Prevent and Respond to Fires

Once a fire starts, it can be hard to put out before it causes serious damage. Therefore, prevention is key. Make sure you regularly test your smoke alarms and replace their batteries. Keep a fire extinguisher near your kitchen and garage.

Also, it can be helpful to keep a fire blanket on hand. Fire blankets are made to smother and put out flames. A ladder can guarantee a way out if the fire blocks doors and other exits. Discuss fire safety and exit routes with your children in case of an emergency.
