  • Page 32 Minimizing Fire Hazards The three most common causes of fires: • Cooking is the leading cause of home fires in the U.S. It's also the leading cause of fire injuries. Cooking fires often result from unattended cooking and human error, rather than mechanical failure of stoves or ovens.
  • Page 33: Testing & Maintenance

    Providing a Fire Warning System Household fires are especially dangerous at night. Fires produce smoke and deadly gases that can overcome occupants while they sleep. To warn against fire, smoke detectors should be installed outside each separate sleeping area in the immediate vicinity of the bedrooms and on each additional story of the family living unit, including basements.
