After the Fire
The information on the pages below is provided by Edmonton’s Fire Rescue Services to assist you in dealing with the aftermath of a fire.
Why does there Appear to be Excessive Damage to your Home?
Fires produce very high temperatures, and toxic smoke and gases. Firefighters must ventilate your house quickly to aid in firefighting and help reduce fire damage by making these openings. Fire can get into wall and ceiling spaces, go unnoticed and cause further damage, so openings must also be made to check for this possibility. These are standard firefighting techniques.
