Map of the Area


If this fire was not caused by natural means, then it's possible that the incident occurred due to a defective appliance. Plenty of fires have started because of defective electronics, space heaters, gas leaks, bad wiring in the building, etc. If something like this was responsible, then whoever is responsible for the issue needs to be held accountable. If it's some sort of issue that others are at risk of encountering, then time can't be wasted. The problem has to be addressed before anyone else is affected by the defect. This is one reason why thorough investigations are so important after a fire. It's necessary to determine the truth about what occurred, but it's also necessary to ensure the problem does not go on to harm others as well.
