Understanding More About Residential Fires in Georgia

1/17/2022 (Permalink)

Residential fires cause serious injuries and damage each year in Georgia. The Georgia Emergency Management and Homeland Security Agency has four helpful facts that are important to understand about fire:

Fire is fast – In less than 30 seconds a small flame can get completely out of control and turn into a major fire, and thick, black smoke can fill a house in minutes.

Fire is hot – In fact, heat is more threatening than flames. Inhaling super-hot air will scorch your lungs and the heat can melt clothes to your skin. In five minutes, a room can get so hot that everything in it ignites at once: this is called flashover.

Fire is dark – Fire isn’t bright, it’s pitch black. Fire starts bright, but quickly produces black smoke and complete darkness. If you wake up to a fire you may be blinded, disoriented and unable to find your way around the home you’ve lived in for years.

Fire is deadly – Fire uses up the oxygen you need and produces smoke and poisonous gases that kill. Breathing even small amounts of smoke and toxic gases can make you drowsy, disoriented and short of breath. The odorless, colorless fumes can lull you into a deep sleep before the flames reach your door.

In addition to prevention and fast first responder response, what you do after the fire is also important. SERVPRO of Valdosta is here and ready to help you and your family after a fire in your home or business.
