Fires cause a lot of damage and are in-discriminatory on what they destroy. Once started, fires are hard to control and very hard to extinguish. The devastation posed by this fire is severe. Seven automobiles have been damaged. There is no doubt that other parts of the property have been damaged as well. It is unclear what started this fire, but something is responsible.

If the cause of the fire was faulty wiring or arson, then someone might be held responsible. If the cause, however, was an act of God or something else that could not be helped, then the insurance companies might pay out. Insurance companies might try to get out of paying what is due to the customer to save money. This is not right to the consumer who is seeking to recover losses after a fire. If you have suffered property damage due to a fire, please do not delay and give our offices a call.
