What are the leading causes of home fires?

This home suffered fire damage but we were able to recover the structure and contents. The family was able to return home safely after we removed the soot and the smell of smoke from the home. 

A home fire can be a tragic event, which means you need to do everything possible to protect your home and family before one occurs. Having working smoke alarms and a fire escape plan is essential, but you also need to be aware of some of the leading causes of house fires. The kitchen is one of the main areas where fire can occur. Make sure you have a fire extinguisher accessible in the kitchen that can combat fires caused by cooking oils and food. Electrical fires are another common cause. Prevent this type by using outlets appropriately. During the holidays, Christmas trees can cause a fire if they get too dry.
