New stats released by The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service show over half of accidental house fire fatalities involved people over 60.

A staggering 61% of all home fire fatalities over the last five years and 34% of fire casualties involved people over 60.

There are a number of factors affecting people as they get older including:-

-    spending more time at home or living alone
-    having limited mobility
-    long term medical conditions or some medications
-    limited sight or hearing
