Fire hazards are considered to be one of the most dangerous hazards in the world, which could lead to significant casualties and economic losses. This paper summarizes the fire hazards in China during the period from 2000 to 2016 in daily life, transportation, storages, industrial production, etc. In this research, the tempo-spatial distribution of fire hazards that result in fatalities, injuries and direct economic losses was studied. The place distribution of fire hazards was analyzed, and the primary causes of fire hazards were also discussed. In addition, an extensive fire hazard induced by an explosion incident at Tianjin harbor was studied and discussed. Linear regression relationships between the four indicators of fire hazard and the average gross domestic product were developed and analyzed. Based on the analyzed results, recommended mitigation measures against fire hazards were recommended.
