    1. I was surprised to find that careless smoking is now down to only the 6th most common cause of house fires in Colorado Springs (according to CSFD 2019 reports). And that food on the stove (which used to be the top cause of housefires until 2017) has dropped to second place behind electrical short, fault, or malfunction.

      1. Actually, smoking was the top contributory factor as recently as 2017. But presumably there aren’t as many cigarette smokers now as there used to be . . .
