Houston, TX (Vocus) February 9, 2010
Along with frigid temperatures come the inevitable news stories involving house fires- stories of families who have lost loved ones and material possessions in fires caused by space heaters. According the National Fire Protection Association in 2008 fire departments responded to over 1,450,000 fires. Over 3,000 civilian deaths and 16,000 civilian injures occurred as the result of these fires. Smoking, heating equipment, electrical and lighting equipment and arson are the four leading causes of fires.
