Types Of Fires That Could Affect Your Home

No matter the cause, a fire near or inside your home can wreak havoc on your surfaces or structures. Common fires that occur to homeowners include

Natural Fire

This is when outdoor fire’s effects somehow get in the house. When leaves, trees, shrubs or bushes burn outside the home, smoke can penetrate the structure, leaving smoke residue and odors. If winds change suddenly or the outdoor fire gets too close to the home, burning or melting of siding or walls can also occur.

Protein Fire

Think of this as a kitchen fire. Often, food from the oven or stovetop burns or catches fire, leaving strong odors and smoke residue on your surfaces. The walls near or behind your appliances, as well as the ceilings above, may experience damage.

Complex Fire

Natural and synthetic items within the home burn (like a candle catching drapes on fire which spreads to the wall and ceiling). Complex fires require emergency mitigation because synthetic smoke odors can be harmful, and greasy residue is often left on your surfaces.

Furnace Malfunction

Certain heating appliances, like oil-fired furnaces, can malfunction and cause extensive smoke damage within the building.
