On 31 January 2004, a fire at the Rosepark Care Home in Lanarkshire led to the deaths of 14 elderly residents. This was a relatively modern facility with 24 hour staffing and only two minutes from a fire station. In 2010 a Fatal Accident Inquiry (FAI) heard from all the key players and reported in 2011. It sought to identify improvements in fire safety that might prevent such a tragedy in the future.
