Common Fire Causes
Fires occur at a property for a number of reasons. Three of the most common fire causes include:
- Cooking: where food may be left unattended on the stove, leading to a fire.
- Heaters: where a space heater comes into contact with a combustible item.
- Wiring: where wiring inside the walls of a home becomes brittle and fails, leading to an electrical fire.
All of these accidental situations may result in a fire that causes damage to the property. Some damage is severe, resulting in a total loss of the property, while others are less serious, giving you a chance to make repairs.

Understanding the Fire Damage
When the time comes to make repairs, your insurance company might not agree with you about the losses you have suffered due to the fire at your property. An insurer may try to reduce the amount of the payment it will make to you, based on this disputed information.
The insurance company may overlook some significant costs that may apply in your situation, including:
- Hidden damage inside walls
- Complete smoke and soot removal
- Replacing undamaged items to maintain a uniform appearance of the home after repairs are made
