Generally, December, January and February are the deadliest months for fires.
In recent years, the top 3 days for home fires were New Year’s Day, Christmas Eve, and Christmas Day.
Cooking and heating are the leading causes of home fires in the months of December through February.
Home candle fires occur at nearly twice the rate in December as throughout the rest of the year, at least in part because of holiday decorations and rituals.
