The 2020 national estimates for nonresidential building cooking fires and loss show that there were:
- 28,600 fires.
- $50,900,000 in dollar loss.
Overall trends for nonresidential building cooking fires and loss for the 10-year period of 2011 to 2020 show the following:
- A 24% increase in fires.
This increase may be due to an NFIRS coding edit implemented in 2012.
- A 3% decrease in dollar loss.
This overall constant dollar-loss trend takes inflation into account by adjusting each year's dollar loss to its equivalent 2020 value.

Deaths and injuries by individual causes are not shown, as small numbers of nonresidential building casualties are reported to the NFIRS, and many of the fires that caused these casualties have insufficient information to determine fire cause.
