AbstractFire deaths in Ontario in 1955 are studied and compared with the fire deaths there which occurred in 1954. Fire deaths of infants, deaths due to ignition of clothing, and other fire deaths are each treated separately. Fire deaths are shown to be more numerous in relation to population in the northern part of the province and less so in the cities. Their variation with time of year, day of week, hour of day, and age of victim, is explored.
