The National Fire Protection Association reports that the most common causes of apartment fires are related to gas or electric appliances. We certainly like to think that most fires are simply accidents, but the fact is that many of these accidents are entirely preventable. A tenant in another apartment may be leave the oven on when they go on vacation. A maintenance or repair worker may be careless in his or her work on the boiler or furnace. The building’s owner may simply ignore necessary maintenance concerns regarding gas appliances. The damage caused, or property lost can cause serious financial problems, causing the victim to need Denver debt management assistance. Any of these things may leave these people open to liability if their actions cause a fire which injures or kills others, or causes major property damage.
