Property owners have a duty to properly operate, maintain and supervise their property. One important duty of any property owner is to take adequate steps to prevent fires. In addition, property owners must take steps to mitigate the damage that may be caused to accident victims in the event of a fire. Examples of property owner negligence may include:
- Failure to equip smoke detectors
- Failure to have working batteries in all smoke detectors
- Fire code violations (blocked exits and other violations)
- Dangerous conditions (e.g., loose electrical wiring, flammable liquids)
- Occupancy violations
- Lack of accessible fire extinguishers
- Unsafe work conditions
