Fire is the most expensive cause of home damage. The average cost for recovery after a contained fire in the United States is $14,500 for a 1500 square foot home. Larger fires often require a complete rebuild even if the fire is limited to a section of the home. These losses can run into six and seven figures, not to mention the inconvenience and safety concerns associated with finding temporary housing and securing your property. Leaving candles unattended, stepping away from a lit gas stove, and electrical shortages are the most common causes of house fires.
