Abstract

This paper presents the data analysis of electrical fire incidents in Shenzhen, China. A detailed examination of 3192 electrical fire incidents from 2014 to 2018 is presented. Time distribution and spatial distribution of electrical fires in residential buildings are reported. The analysis of this study indicates that the prevention of electrical fires in urban villages is of great significance. Moreover, installing arc fault detection devices is necessary to reduce electrical fires. The results presented in this paper can be beneficial to policymakers for electrical fire prevention.
