Common Causes Of Fire:
- Cooking Equipment
- Chemical & Gases
- Electrical & Consumer Electronics
- Lightning Fires & Lightning Strikes
- Smoking Materials (i.e. tobacco products)
A fire occurs in a structure at the rate of one every 63 seconds and a home fire occurs every 88 seconds. That means a property or business owner is affected by fire damage at every minute, per day. Florida sees more than its share of building fires, often caused by lightning, carelessness, arson or electrical fires. Lighting can destroy, melt, burn or blow up most anything it hits due to its 50,000 degree temperature and massive charge. Fortunately, lightning damage and the aftermath is covered by most home or business policies. However, sometimes the damage to the contents is not. It is not the only cause of house and building fires, though. Lit candles left unattended and smokables left burning, grease fires, faulty wiring, arson and brush fires can also create fires.
