Laptops

Newspaper

People store newspaper in piles for later use. If the newspaper is stored near heat source like a heating system, they can catch on fire easily. Do not store a lot of newspaper and place them in a cool and dry place. 

Barbecue charcoal

After using charcoal for barbecue, do not leave used charcoal unattended. It could ignite itself and cause big fire. To prevent such devastating disaster, put smoldering charcoal in a metal tin and put lid on it. Do not leave them in storage and shut the door. 

Cigarette butts

You never know what a little cigarette butt can cause tragedy to your property. Cigarettes can be fire hazards if left carelessly inside or outside the home. Matches and lighters can accidentally ignite if stored with papers. Keep all such things away from children in a cool and dry place. 

Light bulb in closet

Do not pile clothes in closet near light bulb. A glowing hot bulb can ignite fire easily, ignoring the combustible material stacked in closet. To prevent fire, install proper enclosed light fixtures and put your clothes away from lights.
