Over a half million arson fires, including
100,000 building fires, cost our nation more than
$2 billion annually and kill over 700 people.
It costs our communities so much more!
One-fourth of all fires are arson and over
one-half of them are set by juveniles. Arson
is a very serious crime and could be fatal.
