Both home and non-home structure fires were higher in 1980 and then fairly stable through the remainder of the 1980s and 1990s. From 2002 to 2009, the numbers had generally been falling, but both types of structure fires increased from 2010 to 2012 before dropping again. Home structure fires increased slightly from 2013 to 2014.
