With colder temperatures be cautious of indoor candles and fires.
When the owner went to sleep that night they forgot to blow out the candle they left on their porch. Not until 6am they were alerted when their fire alarm went off and noticed the fire was ablaze. She immediately called the fire department and SERVPRO of North Sarasota was called to clean up the aftermath. The owner was delighted that we were able to come out there and make it look "Like it never even happened."
