Sources of Building Fires and Fire Damage Restoration in Yankton, SD

January 12th, 2016 · No Comments

Open grasslands, forested areas, and high winds are common in South and North Dakota. Because of this, many areas in Southeast South Dakota, despite their locations near the banks of the Missouri River and other major bodies of water, experience the potential risks of wildfires. For any source of a building fire in your home or business, you can rely on ServiceMaster Clean of Southeast South Dakota for fire damage restoration in Yankton, SD.

Natural fires and other sources of building fires in Yankton, SD have left business and home owners struggling with fire damage before. Even in the past month, several cases of building fires have troubled the community and economy of YanktonCounty.

In the last few weeks of February, high wind gusts were reported across South Dakota, and red flag warnings for wildfires were issued for South Dakota and surrounding states  including Missouri, Nebraska, and Kansas.

Despite the greater prevalence of fire warnings in the Black Hills and western South Dakota, the risk of fire damage to homes and businesses from natural and other sources in eastern South Dakota is still a real problem for Yankton residents.

Natural fires pose one dangerous source of fire damage, but other common sources can come from inside the building itself. Electrical failures, lit cigarettes, clogged chimneys, faulty appliances, and kitchen-related fires are some of the most frequent sources of building fires.

Other sources of residential or commercial building fires can include foul play like arson, insurance fraud, and vandalism.

While Yankton home and business owners should be alert for signs of potential fire sources year round, they should also be cautious of grassland and forest fires, especially during the spring, summer, and fall.
