An apartment or a house can be consumed by fire in minutes. Injuries from building fires can be extremely painful, life changing, and often fatal. Such injuries most often involve burns, but also may include head trauma and broken bones from explosions, cuts and abrasions from flying or falling debris, and inhalation of smoke or toxic fumes.

Apartment Building Fires

An apartment building is a private premises with three or more apartments that is taken care of by a landlord, property manager or other type of property owner. The property owner is responsible for providing tenants and their guests with a safe building. This means they must comply with the safety regulations for apartment buildings. If safety regulations go overlooked or are ignored altogether, serious injury and death can occur. Landlords, as well as property builders, must comply with the state fire safety codes. If they are not followed, fires can start and spread more rapidly than if the codes were followed.
