Electric Fires - Knowing the Facts and Staying Prepares
Home electrical fires can start in wiring, electrical distribution systems, and lighting equipment, as well as in any equipment powered by electricity such as cooking, heating, office, and entertainment equipment, washers, and dryers, as well as electrical distribution or lighting equipment. This is according to the National Fire Prevention Association, (NFPA) which studies fire causes and prevention extensively.
The (NFPA) research indicates that fires involving electrical failures or malfunctions accounted for the highest share of civilian deaths (18%) and direct property damage (20%).
They also discovered through data that nearly two of five fires (39%) involving electrical failure or malfunction occurred in the cold weather months from November through February and usually between midnight and 4 am.
Understanding the common causes of fire can help us prevent and prepare. If you have a fire in your home or business, you are going to need professional help cleaning up.
