According to the National Fire Protection Agency, fires caused by cigarettes are responsible for 25 percent of all fires started in the U.S. While household fires have declined, residential fires caused by cigarettes have increased by 19 percent in the past year. “Obviously, the changes made to tobacco cigarettes in an attempt to control residential and forest fires are not working. It appears the only true way to eliminate the fire threat posed by smoking is to alleviate the element of fire entirely from the act itself.” (Jason Golec continues)
The electronic cigarette presents a promising opportunity to dramatically improve the epidemic of residential fires. Since the new product carries no risk of causing fires and emits no smoke, the product is acceptable for use in almost any indoor setting. “The act of smoking is habitual. Places that allow smoking indoors, like Las Vegas, teach the smoker that it is ok to lite up inside and to relax while they smoke. Electronic cigarettes provide the same habitual reinforcement but without the harmful side effects and hazardous by products.” (states Eddie Quiroz) As more and more smokers use electronic cigarettes, the tobacco cigarette will increasingly get phased out along with the occurrence of fires that are caused from lit cigarette butts.
While residential fires caused by cigarettes continues to increase, wild fires remain to be a pressing issue as the damage left behind can be irreparable. “Forest fires don't just have an impact on the environment. They effect the economy, society, and human health. Forest fires leave a visual impact, causing damage to houses and other properties, environmental destruction, damage to local and national economies and the potential for loss of life.” (reports the Department of Forest Fires)
On March 11, 2012, a brush fire caused by cigarettes burned 10 acres of vegetation near Chicago including grasses and marshland in the Deer Grove Forest Preserve. “The fact that a fire was started by cigarettes in Illinois during this time of year in a predominantly wet environment demonstrates the tobacco industry’s failed attempt to control fire incidents brought on by their product. (Eddie Quiroz continues) Fire officials said, “Having to struggle through knee-deep mud and water in the preserve’s marshland area made it more difficult to get control over the blaze."
