"Each year, from 2014 to 2016, fire departments responded to an estimated 108,200 fires in residential buildings during the months of January, February and March across the nation. These fires resulted in an estimated annual average of 980 deaths, 3,575 injuries, and $1.9 billion in property loss. The residential building portion of the fire problem is of great national importance as it accounts for the vast majority of civilian casualties, and winter residential building fires account for a considerable portion of that."
