Common Causes of Fire

Fire is a leading cause of death and property in the residential and commercial sectors. Many lives were lost because of fire, many people fell into poverty due to property loss. It may happen to you as well, but if you are careful enough, you can mitigate the damage to a considerable margin. Your precaution can save lives, buildings, and property.

Leading Causes That Ignite Fire 

There are several reasons why fire damage occurs in residential and commercial places. Here are some of them you should aware of-

  • Electrical equipment: Electrical equipment can be a potential fire hazard. Overheating, poorly connected circuits, and aged equipment may cause significant fire damage to your house and workplace.
  • Appliance malfunction: Any appliance that produces heat (such as heaters, clothes dryers, and computers) or warms up over time (such as fans and computers) poses a risk of catching fire. Unattended cooking equipment is a common source of preventable fires.
  • Smoking: One of the most common causes of fire is negligent smoking habits. People often fall asleep while smoking. They risk setting their bed, chair, or couch on fire. Discarding hot ash in the trash can is another reason for fire damage.
  • Chemicals: Natural gas or propane gas sources can quickly start home fires. An accidental spark and a little leak can produce an explosive condition. Dangerous chemicals can also cause combustion. Thus, it's crucial to carry out such work outside the home.
  • Children: Children tend to be playful. They always show curiosity about everything. They often play with matches and cause fire damage to households.
