Details of the Carmichael House Fire

Captain Park Wilbourn with the Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District said firefighters arrived at the home to find heavy smoke and flames coming from the rear of the house. Crews were able to contain the fire and prevent it from spreading. However, a large portion of the home had significant fire damage.

According to Wilbourn, the unidentified man was found dead inside the home after crews extinguished the fire. The exact cause of death is pending an autopsy report. The Sacramento County Coroner’s Office will release the man’s identity pending notification of family.

Officials said several other people were able to escape the house safely, and no other injuries were reported. Metro Fire personnel remained at the scene until about 3:00 a.m. Thursday while they investigated how the fire started and where it originated.

House Fires Can Be Devastating

A house fire can be physically and emotionally devastating. A fire may destroy an entire home consuming priceless keepsakes, precious photos, and essential documents. Many times, a fire can result in fatal trauma as well.

An accidental fire can endanger everyone in the home. It can ignite unpredictability, spread quickly in seconds, and destroy a house within minutes. Even small fires that are extinguished quickly can cause thousands of dollars of damage. Having a good insurance policy is essential to help lessen the financial losses associated with a house fire.

If your house was destroyed by a fire, your chances of pursuing fair compensation in a lawsuit would depend significantly on what type of evidence exists. Evidence may be discovered that another person’s negligence contributed to the fire. It is wise to consult with an experienced burn injury attorney. The lawyer will need to look at the fire report to determine this vital information.
