Map of the Area
It’s tragic to read about any accident like this, but a lot of people tend to write them off unfairly. There’s a general perception that house fires are always caused by the resident making a mistake. This certainly happens, but that’s not always the case. There could be faulty wiring, leaking gas lines, a product defect leading to the fire, etc. Only once all these possibilities have been explored can anyone draw a proper conclusion.
Another factor that few people consider is that many house residents rent the property. In those cases, it’s crucial to find out what condition the property was in leading up to the fire. If the landlord knew about or should have known about a hazardous condition that led to the fire–or perhaps worsened the situation, like not having working smoke detectors–then those are things the landlord can face consequences for.
Hopefully there are experienced investigators looking into this, because there is no doubt a family out there going through unimaginable hardship. They deserve to get some clear answers about what happened here and how it could’ve been avoided.
