Though fire is one of the most useful tools that humans have been able to harness, proper precautions should always be used when working with fire. When used improperly or fire safety procedures are not observed fire can become a destructive force that can cause severe injuries, devastating losses, and even death. In the United States alone, each year fire causes the death of approximately 4,300 people (more than all natural disasters combined) and injures another 27,000. In addition to the bodily injury caused by fire, it is estimated that it does over $8,000,000,000 in property damage each year.
Though unwanted and unnecessary fires occur in nature, human error can cause fire or the spread of a fire. From direct actions such as arson, faulty wiring, defective appliances, and negligent storage to more indirect actions such as faulty construction and lack of fire detection devices and/or prevention equipment, careless and negligent action cause far too many fires that wrongfully kill people, severely injure other, and destroy property.
If you believe you have suffered damages because of fire and the fire was caused by the negligent or intentional actions of another, it is important to obtain fire safety reports from the local fire and police departments regarding the cause of the fire as well as speak with someone that is able to investigate the fire with you.
