According to the CDC ( http://www.cdc.gov/ncipc/factsheets/fire.htm ) :

Fire injuries and deaths:


The fifth most common reason for injury deaths in the USA and the third most common reason for deaths in the home are from Burns and Fires. Out of 25 developed countries, the US is 6th in its mortality rate related to fires.

Fatalities and injuries from house fires has gone down in the past decades, but many are still preventable and are a public heath issue.

Consequences and Occurences

Every 2 hours somebody died in the USA from a fire, and every 29 minutes someon was hurt due to fire, in 2005.

80% of the fire deaths in the US in 2005 happened in homes.

3030 people died in 396,000 home fires in 2005 in the USA. 13,825 were hurt in those fires.

Toxic gases and smoke killed most, not burns.

Groups at Risk

People most at risk of fire injury/death are young children under 4, over 65 year old adults, the poor, rural Americans, people in substandard housing or manufactured housing.
