This photo was taken
2/3/2008 at the scene of a house fire.
Received from a friend who is in the insurance property
business. It is
well worth reading.
This is one of those e-mails that if you don't send it,
someone on your list will suffer for not reading it. The
message was written by a lady whose brother and wife
learned a hard
lesson this past week.
Their house burnt down.. nothing left but ashes. They
insurance so the house will be replaced and most of the
is the good news.
However, they were sick when they found out the cause of
the fire. The
insurance investigator sifted through the ashes for
several hours. He
had the cause of the fire traced to th e master
bathroom. He asked her
sister-in-law what she had plugged in
the bathroom. She listed the normal things....curling
iron, blow dryer.
He kept saying to her, 'No, this would be something that
disintegrate at high temperatures'. Then her
remembered she had a Glade Plug-In, in the bathroom.
The investigator had one of those 'Aha' moments. He said
that was the
cause of the fire. He said he has seen more house fires
the plug-in type room fresheners than anything else. He
plastic they are made from is THIN. He also said that in
there was nothing left to prove that it even existed.
investigator looked in the wall plug, the two prongs
left from the
plug-in were still in there.
Her sister-in-law had one of the plug-ins that had a
small night light
built in it. She said she had noticed that the light
would dim and then
finally go out. She would walk in to the bathroom a few
and the light would be back on again. The investigator
said that the
unit was getting too hot, and would dim and go out
rather than just
blow the light bulb. Once it cooled down it would come
back on. That is
a warning sign
The investigator said he personally wouldn't have any
type of plug in
fragrance device anywhere in his house. He has seen too
that have been burned down due to them.
PLEASE PASS THIS ON NOT ONLY COULD IT SAVE SOMEONE'S
BUT IT COULD SAVE SOMEONE'S LIFE !
