Dr Oz: Fire Safety Misconceptions
Elisabeth Leamy of Consumer Reports says the biggest misconception people have about fires is that they have plenty of time to gather important items before getting out of the house. She says this is simply not true because today’s homes burn a lot faster because so many of the furnishings are made from artificial fibers and that is why you need to get out as quickly as possible.
- Temperatures in a house fire reach 500 degrees in just 3-4 minutes and 1,000 degrees within 8 minutes!
- 60-80% of fire victims do not die from burns, but instead from inhaling smoke or poisonous gases from the fire.
