Every year in Britain there are thousands of house fires. Some are minor with no injury or even a need to call out the fire services but some are more serious. It is estimated 60% of house fires originate in the kitchen. But the risk of fire lurks almost everywhere in the home.
It’s easy to imagine that it wouldn’t happen to you. Accidents don’t normally announce their imminent arrival, there is no warning. But it can happen to anyone if a few simple fire safety measures are not observed.
Coping with the aftermath of a fire is emotionally and financially draining, not to mention incredibly time-consuming. A young Essex couple who had recently exchanged on the sale of their property in Wickford suffered a severe fire to their new home. Two weeks prior to moving in to their home, a neighbour’s home caught fire which quickly spread to their house. Within 20-30 mins it was ripping through their roof. Needless to say the couple were in shock that the fire occurred and the damage it caused.
