Types of Fire

Fire Loss

  • Protein Fire – These include stove-top grease fires, burned and charred meat, or most fires where living tissue or hair proteins are involved. Unlike other types of fires, these leave little visible smoke residue.
  • Wood and Paper Fire – These include attic fires, fireplace puff-backs, most trash can fires and general home fires where mostly the wood structure is involved.
  • Synthetic Fire – These include fires that involve mainly carpeting and upholstered furnishings, electrical fires, and fires where plastic materials have been burnt.


Many home fires will be a combination of wood and synthetic types.

Different types of fires result in different types of smoke and therefore require varying cleanup procedures. Our team will determine the source and types of fire and smoke to ensure the proper steps are taken to restore the damage to your property.
