What damage can be done by a wildfire?

A wildfire can cause physical harm including burns, smoke inhalation, and death. Flames can destroy a home, and the home can suffer water damage from firefighting efforts and secondary storms.

There can be damage to transportation and communication networks in addition to economic damage. Pollutants and a loss of infrastructure may threaten public health.

Below are some of the losses that wildfire damage causes:

Physical injury

A person in direct contact with flames and heat may suffer burns. They may experience smoke inhalation, resulting in toxic exposure and respiratory distress. Death may occur. In addition, secondary injury may occur while a person evacuates the fire including injuries from falling or from a motor vehicle accident.

Home Destruction

Wildfires destroy homes, businesses, and anything in their path. Residents may be left without accommodation, waiting for repairs or alternative arrangements. Homeowners insurance may cover the cost of temporary housing when a wildfire destroys a home.

Home damage

Even if a wildfire doesn’t destroy a home, it may be partially damaged. Fire and smoke can weaken the home’s structure. Water from firefighting can seep into the ceilings, floors and appliances. Personal property may be harmed. There is a risk for secondary mold growth.

Infrastructure damage

Wildfires can damage public infrastructure including utilities and roads. Communication lines can be severed, hindering recovery efforts. Critical infrastructure damage can shut down public transportation networks including air and rail travel.

Public health

Wildfires can threaten public health. Smoke may contain carbon monoxide, pollutants and harmful particles. In addition, damaged crops may hinder food supply. Disruption of the water supply may create a humanitarian crisis.

Economic damage

Economic damage from a wildfire can amount to millions and even billions of dollars. Financial resources are devoted to firefighting, lifesaving and disaster relief. The entire community may face prolonged loss as economic activity moves elsewhere because of damage and destruction.

Causes of wildfires and the responsible party for damages

Causes of wildfires may include:

  • Camping activity, including failing to fully extinguish a campfire
  • Controlled burns that get out of control
  • Defective products
  • Parking a vehicle in dry grass
  • Lack of vehicle maintenance, resulting in hot metal, causing ignition
  • Utility maintenance, often combined with unusual wind events that cause sparking
  • Other infrastructure maintenance failures that cause the wildfire to spread
  • Trailer towing, which may cause sparks from loose safety chains or wheel rims that contact the road
  • Fireworks
  • Discarded cigarettes
  • Arson, intentional harm
  • Natural causes

Many causes of wildfires are preventable. Our team can investigate if negligence is a factor and if any third parties may be liable in addition to an insurance claim.
