Summary

The Netherlands Institute for Safety (NIFV) studied the causes, the conditions and the course of domestic fires with fatal endings in the Netherlands in 2011: the so-called 'fatal domestic fires'. In this report the results of the analysis of the fatal domestic fires in 2003, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011 are compared and combined. All of these fires were caused by accident: fires caused by intent (arson, murder or suicide) were excluded from the study. The analysis of the fatal domestic fires in 2011 is described in a separate report (see link: More information).
