Every year, over 13,000 people are injured in fires that start in residential or commercial buildings. In a few instances, the outbreak of a fire cannot be prevented, but in the majority of cases, fires are caused when property owners fail to follow fire safety standards. Premises owners are required by law to make sure their properties are safe for visitors and occupants, including abiding by fire codes and eliminating fire hazards. When they fail to do so, people on the property can be seriously injured or even killed.
