Fire Fatality Reporting

Since 1986, the State Fire Marshal’s Office has collected various statistics related to fire fatalities in South Carolina. These statistics are analyzed to assess the total number of fire deaths by county, the causes of these deaths, as well as smoke alarm statuses, types of structures involved in the fire, and the ages of deceased. In an effort to streamline information gathering and sharing, you can view monthly and yearly fire fatality statistics below.

To report a fire related fatality, please contact the Division of Fire and Life Safety Duty Chief:
(803) 896-4911
