The National Fire Protection Association (“NFPA”) has released a report showing that the total cost of fire in the U.S. in 2011 was estimated at $329 billion, or roughly 2.1 percent of U.S. gross domestic product (“GDP”). Adjusted for inflation, the total cost represents a 34 percent increase over 1980, while its proportion of U.S. GDP has declined by about one-third.
