Notas: Sumario: Between 2005 and 2009, an average of 56,300 child-playing fires were reported to U.S. municipal fire departments per year. These fires caused annual averages of 110 civilian deaths, 880 civilian injuries, and $286 million in property damage. Structure fires accounted for 22% of fires, but 98% of civilian deaths, and 93% of property damage. Outside or unclassified fires accounted for 76% of the fires, and vehicle fires for 2%. Because most loss of life and damage occur in structure fires, and specifically home fires, the report focuses on home fires. Half of home playing structure fires were started by cigarette lighters, 19% by matches, and 6% by candles. Forty percent of fires began in the bedroom, and mattress or bedding was the item first ignited in 24% of home playing structure fires. Forty-four percent of home playing structure fires were started by a child between the ages of 4 and 6, which is different from outside or unclassified fires, where two out of five of fires were started by someone between the ages of 10 and 12
