avoid fireFire as we know can be a huge benefit but may also be one’s worst enemy. An uncle of mine once said, “It is better for a thief to rob you of of some belongings than to have fire to consume everything you own.”

I say he’s definitely right. Fires are powerful and it would do us all good to know preventive measures to avoid being on its dark side. In this article, we used Readers Digest as our source for top reasons that cause fires in our homes:

  1. Inappropriate electrical installations. Some of us may adhere to do-it-yourself projects without the proper know-how of computing its ratings and proper specs. It is important to consult with licensed electricians before doing so.
  2. Careless keeping of combustible materials. During power outages, many of us make use of candles for temporary lighting. The problem is sometimes, these candles are left in places where it might get accidentally knocked over or forgotten. Matches, lighters or cigarettes should also be safely kept out of reach from children and in room temperature.
  3. Improper use of electrical equipments. Loosely plugged cords, overused outlets and extension cords are some of the no-nos in this category. One thing I learned is that it is better to invest in higher rated electrical equipments so as to provide allowances in case we will plug-in new appliances.
  4. Negligent use of cooking equipments. Kitchen atmosphere is very hot so grease, oils when splattered could cause fires. A safe tip is to be attentive of your cooking and do not leave your pans unattended.
