Fires can be devastating to a home, property, rangeland, community, or state. About 370,000 homes are the scenes of fires each year, and about 80 percent of deaths from fire occur in homes, according to the National Fire Protection Association. An overwhelming number of the victims are children and the elderly. Knowing fire myths from facts can protect you or someone you love from the pain of a home fire.
