Electrical fires killed 24 people last year, says the Safety and Chemicals Agency Tukes. The number is higher than in 2013, when only 11 people died from electrical fires.
 
Electrical fires refer to fires started because of defects in electrical appliances, improper or negligent use of equipment or installation errors.
 
Fires can be caused by electrical appliances such as stoves or ovens, but also include lamps, washing machines, microwave ovens, heaters and refrigeration equipment. 
 
According to Tukes, the victims of electrical fires tend to be older people or people with reduced functional capability.
 
There were 2,460 electrical-related fires in Finland last year.
