Fire prevention

„It corresponds to the experience of life that a fire has to be expected at any time. The fact that there is no fire break out in many buildings for decades does not prove that there is no risk, but this is lucky for the parties involved. The end of this must be expected at any time.“
Oberlandesgericht Münster 10A363/86 from 11th December, 1987
