Property owners have a duty to properly operate, maintain and supervise their property. One important duty of a property owner is to take adequate steps to prevent injuries to people on their property that may result from a fire or smoke inhalation.
Examples of property owner negligence may include:
- Failure to equip smoke detectors
- Failure to have working batteries in all smoke detectors
- Poor storage of flammable liquids
- Fire code violations
- Loose electrical wiring
- Occupancy violations
- Lack of accessible fire extinguishers
