Abstract (in English)

Fire is a constant threat to Norway's listed buildings, the majority of which are built in wood. Fire precautionary measures include establishing a 1-1.5 m wide vegetation-free zone round all listed buildings, checking and renewing the electrical wiring and electrical equipment, moving the main intake and fuse-box to a separate fireproof building where possible, ensuring that lightning conductors are of sufficient capacity and properly mounted so as not to cause short-circuiting, keeping attic rooms tidy and clean, and providing individual fire-precautionary information for each listed building.
