    Can some one tell whether a personal computer UPS can cause a fire?

    Yes, but even water can cause a fire under the right conditions.
     
  3. If the UPS meets UL or IEC Safety standards - then it will be "less likely"
    to cause fire.

    Often the parts within power suppliers and UPS have to meet certain
    famability rating. EG 94v0 etc.

    If you ask a lawyer, he will tell yo that even fire extinguisher can be
    construed to cause fire.

    Certain fire extinguishers _will_ aggravate certain fires.
