Outdoor Fire Hazards

Especially in dry summer seasons, the outdoors can be full of fire hazards that can easily lead to extremely dangerous situations. Although there is much that can be done to prevent outdoor fires, especially when a person is watching out for danger signs, this doesn’t always stop these dangerous fires from occurring. Unfortunately, when an outdoor fire happens, those caught in its path could be seriously injured.

All too often outdoor fires start as a result of someone’s thoughtlessness or recklessness. If a person is injured because of this negligence, they may be entitled to file for financial compensation from the individual or group responsible. For more information about these legal options, contact the outdoor fire injury lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® today by calling (414) 271-0900.

Hazards Found Outside

Outdoor hazards linked to fires are often the result of someone else’s actions. These hazards include some of the following problems:

  • Paper, cardboard, and other flammable waste
  • Cans of gasoline
  • Dry foliage
  • Chopped wood
  • Flammable or combustible chemicals stored outside

If a person discards a cigarette, match, or lighter without considering these hazards, they may start a fire that can cause large-scale destruction and potentially very serious burn injuries for anyone caught in the path of the fire.
