Family Pet Starts Fire in Poinciana Home?

1/3/2024 (Permalink)

A mischievous cat is mesmerized by lit candles on a table. We are leaders in fire damage restoration services in Osceola County.

Do you know that your pet could start a fire by bumping into or knocking over a lit candle? Pets are curious and can cause fires. SERVPRO® of Osceola County responds to fire damage emergencies throughout the year in Poinciana. According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), pets and wild animals play a role in starting over 750 home fires each year.

Here are some pet fire safety tips from the NFPA to keep your pets safe around fire:

  • Keep pets away from stoves and countertops
  • Keep pets away from candles, lamps, and space heaters
  • Always use a metal or heat-tempered glass screen on a fireplace and keep it in place
  • Keep pets away from a chimney’s outside vents
  • Have a “pet-free zone” of at least three feet away from the fireplace. Glass doors and screens can stay dangerously hot for several hours after the fire goes out.
  • Some pets are chewers. Watch pets to make sure they don’t chew through electrical cords. Have any problems checked by a professional.
