Storm Damage and Electrical Fires
When most people think of storm damage, they usually think of caved in roofs, broken windows, and water damage. What is sometimes forgotten are electrical fires. A fire can ensue after lightening strikes a home. In addition, electrical fires can start even when lightening strikes away from the property and causes electricity to run through pipes and wires sparking a fire inside the home. This is one of the reasons why it's so important to stay away baths, showers, and other water sources within your property during a lightening storm. Both water and metal are excellent conductors of electricity.
