In Colorado, during 2006 alone, there were approximately 755 cigarette-caused fires. These fires resulted in 5 civilian fire deaths, 13 civilian fire-related injuries, and $2.2 million in (direct) property loss.
SB 08-026 requires all cigarettes sold or offered for sale in Colorado to meet the same criteria for reduced ignition propensity cigarettes
as in New York State. This law went into effect July 31, 2009.
The new law (24-33.5-1214,C.R.S.) is designed to limit the risk that cigarettes will ignite upholstered furniture, mattresses, household furnishings or other combustible material and result in fewer fire deaths, injuries and property loss from fires caused by cigarettes.
