December is the deadliest month when it comes to home electrical fires. Fire deaths typically increase during the winter months as a result of increased indoor activity, use of holiday lighting, heating and appliances, reaching their peak this month. According to the United States Fire Administration, home electrical problems account for 28,600 fires and $1.1 billion in property losses during a typical year. 53% of residential electrical fires involve electrical wiring. Fremont Insurance wants homeowners to be aware of the increased risk of electrical fires during the winter months and be safe during the holiday season.
