There is not much chance of a fire here; this building has been here for over 100 years and we’ve never had a fire.

The age of the building is immaterial. Windsor Castle was more than 800 years old when it caught fire in 1992.

Fires start when combustible substances, sources of ignition, and oxygen come together. 

Unwanted fires occur when these three elements come together in an uncontrolled manner. 

This happened 192,600 times in Great Britain during 2012-2013, resulting in the fire and rescue services being called out.
