Cigarette Fires

The hazards of smoking cigarettes are hard to avoid. Surgeon General's warning labels, anti-smoking campaigns, and the mainstream media cover the health risks associated with smoking tobacco. Unfortunately, however, most people are unaware of a completely different type of hazard of smoking—house fires.

Cigarette Fire Facts and Figures

Many people are unaware of the fire risks associated with smoking cigarettes. An improperly disposed of cigarette can cause a serious fire, damaging property and potential injuring inhabitants. In order to prevent fires, consider the following tips when extinguishing your cigarette:

  • Do not throw cigarettes onto the ground before putting them out
  • Do not throw lit cigarettes into a trashcan or dumpster
  • When finished, always extinguish your cigarette
  • Do not throw lit cigarettes out of your car's window

Every year, almost 1,000 people in the U.S. are killed and another 2,500 are injured by fires started when a still-smoldering cigarette ignites.
