No city is free of disasters—including Kaysville. For example, the quiet life of the city’s residents was disrupted by a house fire that broke out one night in May 2017. Fire authorities responded to the emergency and contained the fire inside of the home. The residents were not in the house at the time of the fire.

Home fires that occur while homeowners are away are usually associated with electrical problems. Homeowners may forget to disconnect or turn off appliances before leaving the house, causing electrical components to overheat. Another possible cause is faulty electrical wiring.

Homeowners can prevent home fires by turning off or unplugging electrical equipment before exiting the house. A lot of people leave their computers and other devices plugged in but in sleep mode. Even in sleep mode, however, the devices continue to consume electricity, which makes them susceptible to overheating.

No matter how vigilant you are, accidents still happen. Members of a community must be alert and aware, keeping an eye on other homes in the neighborhood. Timely warnings that a house is on fire could save the lives of its residents.

Calling the fire department early can prevent the spread of fire within burning structures and can also safeguard adjacent properties.
