Hotel & Motel Fires in Nevada
Fire departments throughout the United States responded to an estimated average of 3,500 structure fires in both hotels and motels annually. Though these incidents represent only 1% of all structure fires, they still resulted in 9 deaths, 120 injuries, and close to $85 million in property damage last year alone.
Accounting for about one-half of fires in these properties, cooking equipment and kitchen accidents are the leading origin of these blazes. Unfortunately, these fires contributed to 8% of civilian fatalities and more than 20% of the total injuries that occurred.
When a person is exposed to fire, caustic chemicals, or intense heat, serious harm often follows. Moreover, these burn injuries may result in lifelong deformity as well as costly medical treatments, such as skin grafts and other surgeries.
As a result, financial hardships, painful physical problems, and emotional anguish are common among those affected by these tragedies. And when people die in these fires, their families may find themselves in an extremely difficult situation. On top of grieving the abrupt loss of a loved one, families must cope with astronomical medical expenses and sudden funeral costs.
