The weather is not the only thing that can be hot during the summer. Fires are very common during the summer months and can put a real damper on your summer festivities. Fires can happen for a number of reasons, but this blog is going to highlight some of the most common reasons a fire may start at your home this summer.
1. Smoking fires. Though they are common all year, they are especially common in the summer due to the lack of awareness when discarding a cigarette. Be careful not to discard into dry grass or near any flammable structures.
2. Air Conditioning fires. Faulty wiring is usually the cause of AC fires. Fires are most likely to occur when it is hottest outside, between 2-8PM.
3. Lightning fires. Lightning can strike your house and cause a fire to start. It is important to be aware of the weather and stay ready for anything to happen.
