  • Arson hurts the entire neighborhood and city. Although three of every four intentional fires are started outside, most intentional fire casualties and property loss result from structure fires.
  • Fire departments responded to an estimated 53,700 intentional structure fires annually during 2005-2009. These fires resulted in 390 civilian deaths, 1,120 civilian injuries, and an estimated $1.1 billion direct property damage.
  • Intentionally set home structure fires are more likely to be set in the afternoon and evening hours, between 3 pm and midnight.
  • The bedroom is the leading area of origin for intentional home structure fires, while bathrooms are the leading areas in public properties such as stores, offices, or schools.
