LIABILITY IN BUILDING FIRES

Building owners have a responsibility to make sure that their property is reasonably safe and not likely to injure guests or customers. In particular, steps should be taken to reduce the dangers posed by fires. Smoke alarms should be installed in order to properly warn guests of a fire. In addition to smoke alarms and sprinklers, building owners should make sure that exits aren’t blocked by anything.
