Fires in an Apartment Building
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) informs that over 100,000 fires breakout across the nation every year, with apartment building fires accounting for most of them and the main reasons being:
- Negligence in the kitchen while cooking
- Gas heaters and leaks
- Electrical fires from faulty wiring
In the event of a fire in an apartment building, it is recommendable to notify the police immediately. Secondly, stay clear of the kitchen, which is where most fires start. Try to stay as close to the ground as possible and carefully move towards the nearest exit. Do not open any doors if the knobs are hot. If unable to exit the apartment, remain still and wait for firefighters. Apartment buildings should possess fire alarms that are regularly inspected to make sure they work, as well as working fire extinguishers, emergency lighting, emergency evacuation map, and landlords are obliged to make sure the property they rent has no gas leaks or electrical short-circuits that could cause a fire.
Can a Landlord be held liable for Personal Injuries or Losses from an Apartment fire?
Landlords are legally compelled to guarantee hazard-free living conditions for their tenants. This includes:
- Fire exits and evacuation plans amply posted and easily visible
- Fire safety equipment such as fire alarms and extinguishers
- Proper emergency lighting
- Safe gas connections and regular inspection/maintenance
- Safe electrical installations
- Carry Fire Insurance to cover injuries, damages, or losses to third party victims

However, poor maintenance of electrical appliances and installations rank just as high.
