According to the American Burn Association, between 2011 and 2015, close to 500,000 people were seen for burn injuries in emergency departments across the US. One person dies from a fire approximately every two and a half hours while the odds of an American civilian dying from fire exposure or contact with smoke or flames are 1 in 1,498. The most common causes of such fire and burn injuries include contact with a fire or flame, scalds, chemical burns, electrical burns, and thermal burns. 43% of burn injuries are caused by a fire or flame.
