These are just a few of the causes of fire and burn injuries:
- Auto Fires: In the event of a car crash, you may be burned by an explosion, friction due to impact, a defective product, or other factors.
- Smoking: According to the National Fire Protection Agency, in 2008, smoking-material fires caused 680 deaths, 1,520 civilian injuries, and $737 million in direct property damage.
- Industrial Fires: Unsafe working conditions on construction sites or faulty electrical equipment are both factors in industrial fire-related burns.
- Wildfires: Many wildfires are the result of human error, whether that is burning debris, arson, or carelessness. If you witness a wildfire, you should report it to the Texas Forest Service immediately.
