Common Causes of Electrical Fires
When one is alert, electrical fire hazards are easily avoided. All you need to do is look out for the warning signs in your home. Timely action includes shutting off the main power supply and using a fire extinguisher (keep water away from the fire). In addition to this, you must not plug heavy or multiple appliances into extension cords because they cannot take the load and are a common cause of fire hazards.
Some common signs that may become the cause of an electrical fire include:
A burning smell in the air
Power switches are hot to touch
Malfunctioning or charred outlets
Flickering lights due to loose connections
Worn-out or faulty electrical wiring
