Abstract The economic development of the country is very often measured by the development of construction and other industries and the real estate market. Consequently, buildings are very important for the national economy. Real estate management is connected with the owners' responsibility for real estate, its long-term existence, maintenance of the property and all related processes. One of the most important risks in facility management is fire risk. Fire has become an important part of civilization and a factor in the development of society. Among different types of disasters, fire constitutes a significant threat to life and property in urban and rural areas. In Latvia, fire risks are under the control of the State Fire and Rescue Service of the Republic of Latvia. The aim of the research is to investigate statistics of fires in Latvia during the period from 2012 to 2017, and to find the main causes of fires and potential ways to improve the situation. The authors used data analysis, comparison and logical access methods and developed some recommendations. Statistical data for research has been offered by the State Fire and Rescue Service of Latvia and the State Land Service. Research results show that the main causes of the fire are: careless handling of fire, heating systems, fire setting, phase fault, electrical equipment and other equipment, children playing with fire, lightning and other reasons.
