Other tips from the USFA include:

• Check under beds and in closets for burned matches, evidence your child may be playing with fire;
• Take the mystery out of fire play by teaching children that fire is a tool, not a toy; and
• Teach children the nature of fire: It is fast, hot, dark and deadly.
It is also important children know how to react in the case of a fire. Parents should work with the children to make sure a home escape plan is in place — which includes having two ways out of every room and designating a family meeting place in a safe area.
