Fire Damage From Dinner On The Stove, Forgotten Because Of A Phone Call

2/2/2022 (Permalink)

Kitchen Fire Leaving food unattended on the stove can cause major damage to your home.

While the home owner was cooking dinner, their phone rang. While talking to a family member on the phone, the home owner forgot about their dinner cooking on the stove until they heard the smoke alarm go off. They quickly grabbed their fire extinguisher and put out the fire. They then called the Sarasota fire department and SERVPRO® of North Sarasota 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."

Emergency Fire Damage Tips

  • Do not attempt to wash any walls or painted surfaces without first contacting a SERVPRO® Franchise Professional.
