Building fires’ are primary fires which take place in dwellings or ‘other buildings’. They exclude any fires in buildings which were derelict.

The SFRS (Scottish Fire Rescue Service)  attended 5,330 dwelling fires in 2013-14, a decrease of 9 per cent compared to the previous year and the lowest figure in the last 10 years. The number of dwelling fires is of particular importance as they are the biggest cause of fire casualties (87 per cent in the last ten years).

The SFRS attended 2,350 ‘other building’ fires in 2013-14, a decrease of 2 per cent compared to the previous year. Of these, the highest proportion (19 per cent) were in ‘other residential’ buildings, 15 per cent were in ‘private garages, sheds, etc.‘ and around 10 per cent were in each of ‘industrial’ and ‘retail’ buildings.

The rate of dwelling fires per 100,000 dwellings[3] has been used to compare dwelling fire numbers across Local Authorities. The Local Authority with the highest rate of dwelling fires per 100,000 dwellings was Renfrewshire (314 per 100,000 dwellings), closely followed by Glasgow City (304 per 100,000 dwellings). Across Scotland there were 211 dwelling fires per 100,000 dwellings.
