Otherwise, flames are expected;'to consume 10.000 American lives and damage property worth $700,000,000. Safe habits In the iiome are recognized as being the most effective preventers of conflagrations, because studies by the National Board of. Fire Underwriters have proved that,three out of all home fires'start as a result ot careless- l/ed steel gasoline or oil cans. 'Hi'ese containers are of fireproof construction. .; ••:• Misuse of electricity and carelessness with electrical .appliances are the filial leading cause! of home fires. Amateur electricians arid forgetful housewives are--the ciflp'rits. The rccommcndede i practice 'is. to let skilled eltctriclans' handle all household wiring lohs'aud .to disconnect irons arid toasters before leaving rooms to answer telephones Children playing with -matches and .nduUK who toss away lighted smoking materials provide .the sparks which' stnrt approximately thirty per cent of home fires. Thus, these ' fires may be eliminated If matches are kept away from youthful hands and If grownups remem- bti lo pslmuuish cigars and cigarettes before discarding them. Cleanlinr.sq Stops Kire As added insurance against this niost r common fire causes, authorities sij the "rounds around a home should" be kept spotlessly clean at all times. They recommended galvanized steel ash and iwbage cans for storing waste materials svhich flare np whenever a match or lighted tobncco is thrown into them Galvanized steel ash and sarbage cans have .close-fltling covers.'arid fire proof bodies to protect refuse, Defective heating equipment '.is Ihe second most common cause of home fire.s, The suireested precaution is to Inive chimneys, stoves and ' furnnce.l inspected at regular Intervals. Specli! attention is advised for gaol-filled o r. cracked chimneys, which let collect, in walls of buildings, often resulting in Ilics Safe-Is l>ry Cleaning Next in importance, as a home (ire hazard Is the misuse o( gasoline and other flnmmablc liquids'.' Such fluids never 'are recommended for mine .dry cleaning, since their fumes may be ignited by any spark within . a radius of two hundred feeti-Cnrnori letlachloride is regarded ns the only safe liquid for home dry cleaning. Because of the low .'Ignition poliit of most liquid fuels and 'cleaners, sa(etv officials recommend storing them in underground tanks away from'the buildings.
