Dryer lint is a really good fire starter…a little TOO good.
– 2,900 home clothes dryer fires are reported each year and cause an estimated 5 deaths, 100 injuries, and $35 million in property loss.
– Failure to clean the dryer (34 percent) is the leading cause of home clothes dryer fires.
– More home clothes dryer fires occur in the fall and winter months, peaking in January.
