As a fire restoration company we have seen our share of fires and reasons for fires. So lets talk about cigarettes...
Cigarette fires cause close to 1,000 deaths and 3,000 injuries each year in the united states, according to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). That records just the death and injuries but what about loss of property...not just property but also nature as wildfires can be caused by cigarettes not disposed of properly especially during a drought.
In the cold of winter many smokers go to their garage instead of outside. How many chemicals do you store in your garage? If you smoke just outside your garage where do you put the cigarette?
We know from experience the damage cigarettes can do, if you choose to do it, use caution as we would rather not have to come clean up your house from destruction contributed to a cigarette!
