Last week was National Fire Prevention Week. It is held the same week as The Great Chicago Fire of 1871. That fire decimated thousands of structures and killed about 300 people. Although Fire Prevention Week has come to a close, it’s important to remember fire safety measures all year in order to prevent home fires and the devastating – sometimes fatal – burn injuries they can cause.
Home fires continue to be a major problem each year:
