Apartment Fires in Mississippi
More than 75% of fire-related civilian deaths are caused by residential structure fires. Every year, more than 358,500 dwellings are destroyed by fire, resulting in more than 3,000 deaths. A little flame can erupt into a large conflagration in less than 30 seconds. The major causes of residential structure fires are cooking, heating equipment, and electrical failure. Over 300,000 structure fires are reported to fire departments across the United States each year. Serious injuries are a possibility for victims of major fires. Inhaling smoke increases your chances of dying from a serious burn or other condition.
