Fires are indeed terrible tragedies; it’s even worse when it happens to places where less capable people reside like children or the elderly. Old structures like an orphanage or an adult foster care home can quickly catch fire due to the materials that were used to build them that become worn over time. Places like these should always have each part of it reinforced as often as possible to avoid casualties. And since the elderly and children are too quick to panic – which is the number one hindrance to an immediate and complete evacuation – having a good roof over their heads will give them a sense of safety and more time to leave a burning structure.
Old structures are more susceptible to fire, like the one reported wxyz.com:
DETROIT (WXYZ) – After a terrifying fire, residents from AFCA Home have been given a place to stay as fire investigators try to determine what caused the blaze.
It happened Friday evening on Detroit’s west side.
The fire broke out on the building’s top floor, displacing about 20 residents.
Management is hoping to assess the damage soon to see who much repair is needed. They would like to fix the building and stay in the area. They have been in business in that area since the early 1970s.
