Reducing Arson at Vacant and Abandoned Buildings


***According to the U.S. Fire Administration, intentional actions are the leading cause of residential and nonresidential vacant building fires.***

The Irving Fire Department would like to make everyone aware of the following measures to help protect your neighborhood from ARSON:

  • Illuminate exterior and entrances - Arsonists, like burglars, fear light.
  • Clear things like shrubbery that block the view of the building.
  • Clean up - Remove anything that could fuel a fire for an arsonist.
  • Keep doors and windows locked - board up vacant buildings.
  • Establish an arson watch program.
