This home in Houma, Louisiana caught on fire last week due to a faulty electrical strip. The electrical strip was plugged in behind the refrigerator located in the home's garage. After the garage became engulfed by flames, the entire roof caught fire leading to its collapse.
Our team arrived after the fire was extinguished to start the content cleaning process. We cleaned some of the items on-site and brought back the remaining contents to our warehouse for a deeper cleaning.
Electrical failures and malfunctions are the second leading cause of home fires in the US. You can prevent electrical fires by making sure your electrical plugs, outlets, and cords are safe to use.
