When most of us think about the threat of home fires and severe fire damage, we tend to imagine scenarios in which we have left the oven on in our house or a neighbor failed to turn off the iron. In other words, we often fear fires caused by human error within the home. But, as many Floridians know perhaps all too well, brush fires can be common occurrences in our state. While these fires sometimes result from negligence, certain weather conditions in Florida can also lead to a dangerous brush fire. Brush fires can occur quickly and without any substantial warning. According to a recent article in the Orlando Sentinel, "this is the time of year when brush fires are more prevalent." And indeed, the article reports that at least seven brush fires occurred across West and Central Florida in the first weeks of April alone.
