Household and Domestic Fire Claims

Published by Evergreen Insurance on 9th March 2020 -


The majority of Fire claims in 2019 were the result of electrical faults causing dangerous static electricity. Some fires were very serious and meant those affected spent months away from their homes without their personal belongings with considerable disruption to their lives. 

In many cases, once a fire had taken hold, it rapidly spread through the home causing extensive damage. Fires that start in the upper floors or at roof level cause the most damage because they spread laterally and are harder to fight and put out. These fires often bring down the roof, ceilings and damage the main reception rooms, kitchen and dining areas below which most of the valuables and essentials for domestic life are kept. If the fire doesn’t damage these, then the impact of falling debris and extinguishment water from the fire hoses most certainly will.
