Burns injuries are serious, and can cause swelling, blistering, scarring and, in serious cases, shock or even death. Burns can be caused by many different things, including heat, chemicals, and radiation. In 2008, 3,320 civilians lost their lives as the result of fire alone. Common causes of preventable fires resulting in burn injuries include residences without properly maintained smoke alarms or none at all, faulty electrical work, defective products (including space heaters, cooking devices, flammable clothing), unsafe workplaces, and auto accidents.
