Cooking Fires in the Home

Cooking fires account for the largest number of house fires in the United States. In fact, 49% of all house fires were cooking related in 2009, according to the U.S. Fire Administration. When a fire breaks out in your home, it can mean the loss of cherished items, property, and even all or part of the structure of your home. That is why, when a fire happens, it is important to have an insurance company that you can put your faith in to cover the damage without stressing you out financially.

Unfortunately, insurance companies often act in bad faith, attempting to deny or underpay their client’s house fire claims. If your home was damaged by a cooking fire, a Dallas insurance attorney of Smith Kendall, PLLC, can help you fight to get the payment you need.

Causes of Cooking Fires

Cooking fires can start suddenly and spread quickly. The most common reasons fires break out in the kitchen include:

  • Unattended cooking
  • Grease fires
  • Placing flammable items or cooking equipment near active stove
  • Wearing loose, hanging clothing while cooking
  • Forgetting to turn off burners, stoves, and ovens

While no one expects a fire to happen while cooking, insurance is designed to protect against unexpected disasters. That is why it is so important for insurance companies to provide the necessary financial relief when a cooking fire causes devastating damage to someone’s property.
