 MAJOR CAUSES OF FIRE OUTBREAKS IN THE CITY OF LUSAKA
I.Electricity – due to
  • Poor workmanship from cheap unqualified electricians
  • Illegal connections and extensions
  • Use of fake electrical products
  • Overloading of the circuits and short-circuits
II.Children Playing with Matches
Children and grandchildren playing with matches are a major source of home fires. According to the Burn Awareness Coalition, burns are the number one cause of accidental deaths in children under two, fire and burn injuries are the second leading cause of accidental deaths in children ages 1-4, and the third leading cause of injury and death for ages 1-18. Matches and lighters in the hands of young children are a significant factor in fire fatalities. Educating parents and grandparents to the seriousness of this issue is paramount.
An accidentally thrown cigarette butt among combustible items,electrical short circuits are also rasons for fires.
