According the the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) on average over 44,500 fires are started each year by children playing with fire. Two out of five fires that were started by children began in the childs bedroom when the child was unattended. 

Fires can be started by a wide array of items from unattended electrical items to candles. Additionally, children may be able to figure out lighters and experiment with them. 

As a general rule, lighters and medications should always be hidden and out of reach of children. 

It is of very good practice to teach your child two ways out of their room, and to crawl low, and close to the floor if the smoke detectors go off. Pick a meeting place that the whole family can go to should there be an incident inside the house. A good example is often a specific tree in front of the house, or a mailbox.
