Planning for and dealing with House Fires

One of the most common emergencies that Canadians experience is a fire in their home. In Canada, house fires are most likely to occur between December and March. The most common causes for fires at home are cooking (leaving the stove unattended), improperly extinguished cigarettes and candles left unattended.
