Causes of Fires
Fires can occur for a number of reasons; however, if proper fire detection and protection devices are in place, severe damage may be avoided. Common causes of fires include:
- Cooking accidents: Grease fires, objects near the stove catching on fire, unattended food
- Improperly disposed of cigarettes: Lit cigarettes can start a fire that may not be detectable until hours later
- Electrical problems: Old electrical wiring and plugs can cause electrical fires that can be difficult to detect
- Heater accidents: Unattended heaters (especially old ones) may ignite nearby objects (such as bedding or furniture) on fire
With working smoke detector and fire extinguishers, most accidents can be controlled before serious damages occur. Make sure to replace the batteries in your smoke detectors and have your fire extinguishers serviced regularly.
If you have suffered losses from a fire that was caused by a negligent property owner, landlord, guest, or other party, you may be entitled to receive compensation.
