E-bikes are a popular mode of transportation that have been embraced by many urban residents. They offer an eco-friendly alternative to cars and can make commuting faster and easier. However, with their rise in popularity comes a growing concern—the potential danger of e-bike fires in apartments and condos.
While the risk of e-bike fires may not be top of mind for many, it is a real danger. When e-bike batteries malfunction or overheat, they can quickly ignite and lead to a devastating fire. In apartments and condos, this danger is magnified due to the close proximity of multiple units as well as shared walls and floors. To make matters worse, residents often store their e-bikes near the entrance of their unit. A fire can quickly spread to other units, potentially trapping residents and making it difficult for firefighters to control the blaze.
