  • These fires involved equipment such as wires, lights, cords and plugs.
  • Electrical distribution or lighting equipment ranked first in direct property damage and third among the major fire causes in homes.
  • In 2017, electrical fires accounted for 7.9 percent and appliances for 7.5 percent of structure fire causes in Minnesota.

Electrical safety and fire prevention:

  • Only plug one heat-producing appliance directly into an outlet at a time.
  • Extension cords are intended for temporary use only.
  • Have all electrical work done by a qualified electrician.
  • Call an electrician if you smell burning or a rubbery smell from appliances, notice flickering or dimming lights, see sparks from an outlet, or find discolored outlets or frequent problems with fuses or tripped breakers.
