According to the New York City Fire Department, in 2007, there were more than 28,000 structural fires in the City of New York.

Fires and explosions can cause severe injuries or even death. Causes of fires and explosions vary widely and include defectively designed equipment and machinery, improperly maintained equipment and machinery and improperly stored or used combustible materials. Because of the devastation that results from fires and explosions, it is often particularly necessary to have fires and explosions professionally investigated immediately after their occurrence in order to ascertain their cause.
