How Fire Can Damage Your Home

Fires can cause a significant amount of damage in a short time. In the right conditions, an entire home may catch fire within minutes. Not all fires have to be blazing infernos, though.

  • Electrical problems and grease fires can easily lead to isolated damages that are contained in a certain area within the building.
  • The extreme temperatures of some fires can lead to heat damage, which are indirect types of damage such as peeling or bubbling paint, melted plastics or metals, and warped wood or other surfaces.


To make things more complicated, not only can a building be damaged by the initial fire, firefighting efforts and fire suppression systems can lead to additional water damage.
