The professionals are saying newer homes are more flammable.
From January 1 to October 23, the Gibbons Fire Department responded to six structure fires in town.
"A lot of the contents that people have in their houses are not natural fibers. It's a lot of polystyrene and plastic riveted materials and they generate a lot more heat, which creates the fires to start going faster," said Gibbons' deputy fire chief Jason Coveney.
According to Coveney, some of the newer mobile homes can be engulfed in flames in less than 10 minutes.
Firefighter safety is also a major concern as the newer houses aren't built as strong and the roofs can collapse easier.
"A lot off the roofs now aren't full trusses. They just heat up, let go and there's nothing holding them up anymore."
He told MIX 107 a good amount of fires still start in the kitchen from cooking.
Coveney added that basic check-ups, such as looking for fire hazards, testing smoke detectors and knowing multiple ways out of the house are keys to safety and prevention.
