Numbers of fires have been increasing
The Fire Brigades Union’s 47th period of strike action ended last night. The four day strike began at 1800 on 31 October and finished at 1800 on Tuesday 4 November.
Last year there were over 8,000 fires in London caused by rubbish. They start easily, and a large number of them are started deliberately.
Fires caused by smokers’ materials are more likely than other domestic fires to cause death or serious injury. LFB campaigned with other organisations to ensure that all cigarettes sold in the UK meet a fire safer cigarette standard.
