No data to back this up but. I have gas for furnace and glory holes, electric for annealers. With gas I worry less about fire more about explosion. With electric it is fire. As an ex-firefighter I agree with Pete, bad housekeeping is a huge factor, followed by stupidity, and then bad construction/electric/gas practices. Keep a clean shop, don't be stupid, and build stuff right and you can rest way easier in a hot shop or anywhere else. Dumbest thing I saw as a firefighter was a house where they took an extension cord, cut it in half spliced in about 20 feet of speaker wire using telephone connectors and routed it under a pile of laundry in a linen closet. Biggest surprise is that it took a month to start a fire.
