Electrical fires are often the most preventable types of fires that occur in the United States. Nearly 7% of all residential fires over the last two years were classified as electrical fires, according to the U.S. Fire Administration.

A common misconception is that electrical fires typically occur within the kitchen or while no one is at home. However, an electrical fire will most likely while occupants are home and begin within a bedroom.

There are many steps that individuals can take to eliminate the hazards that are commonly associated to electrical fires.

The most common causes of electrical fires:

  1. Wiring
  2. Light Fixtures
  3. Faulty outlets/appliances
