Despite the busy activities of traditional markets, the physical condition and fire protection system of traditional markets are generally poor, making it vulnerable to fire incidents. This study aims to identify and map the causes and impacts of fire incidents on traditional markets in various countries. Data was collected through a systematic literature review from 100 references, with a total of 60 fire incidents at the traditional markets in various countries. The research found that the main causes of traditional market fires were: electricity, negligence, and arson attacks. This study also identified general conditions and problems in traditional markets related to fire incidents, and found 6 vulnerable factors of fire risk, i.e. building, social, institutional, environmental, health, and economic factors, which later mapped in the form of cause and effect diagrams. Based on the research findings, a recommendatio n on fire prevention strategy for traditional markets is proposed.
