Although arson is generally perceived to be a threat to property rather than to life, over 60 people die each year as a result of fires that are deliberately lit in buildings. In addition, over 2000 people are injured in such fires. Deliberate fires in road vehicles and outdoors result in 30 more deaths and 200 more injuries. Published 2012 At the time of publishing, Communities and Local Government (CLG) estimates that the total cost of arson is over £2 billion annually (for England and Wales) with malicious false alarms costing a further £80 million.
