The Office of the Washington State Fire Marshall just provided a media release warning smokers about the fire danger caused by cigarettes. According to the release, approximately 1,000 people die each year in smoking-related home fires including four people so far this year in our state.

The Fire Marshall recommends purchasing reduced ignition propensity cigarettes, smoking outdoors and never smoking in sleeping areas or homes where medical oxygen is used.
