I bet you didn't know that thousands of garage fires occur every year..we didn't know either. So we decided it was time to write a blog post about it to educated others. It is common to have garages attached to home with can increase the chances of a home fire too. Even garages that are not attached could possibly cause a home fire too. Let's investigate causes of garage fire..check them out below.  

  1. Electrical Complications
    • Faulty Circuits
    • Overloaded Outlets
  2. Flammable Liquids (Can spark)
    • Gasoline
    • Paint
