Warehouse Fires

In many industrial explosions, the catalyst for disaster is fire. Most industrial plants utilize warehouses to store chemicals and other materials necessary to carry out their functions. When a fire occurs in a warehouse, the results may be catastrophic.

Warehouse fires are especially dangerous because they are often large and lead to explosions. If you or someone you love was injured in a warehouse fire, contact the warehouse fires lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® at 800-242-2874 to learn more about your legal options.

Fires, Explosions, and Negligence

In many cases, warehouse fires occur because of the negligent actions of industrial plant workers and employers. Most industrial plants are designed to have multiple safeguards against potentially dangerous accidents and acts of nature.

As a result of these safeguards, it often requires the negligence of an individual worker to cause a warehouse fire at an industrial plant. Negligent actions leading to fires and explosions may include:

  • Smoking near flammable liquids
  • Carelessly transporting potentially combustible substances
  • Stacking reactive substances close together

A warehouse fire may also occur if an employer is negligent and does not keep the industrial warehouse up to fire codes. This may include failing to install a sprinkler system or failing to provide proper ventilation within the warehouse.
