We all know that when a house or business goes up in flames, it's typically followed by LOTS of smoke, which is full of toxic chemicals. Consider the following quote from https://www.uphelp.org/ “A typical structure fire may generate literally tens of thousands of toxic chemicals and gasses as a variety of materials and products are burned.” YIKES! That’s a LOT of toxic chemicals. When most people think of a structure fire, their first few thoughts are usually getting everyone out safely and assessing the damage. While these are extremely important things to worry about, a lot of people forget to think about how breathing in the toxic chemicals in smoke can affect their overall health.
If you ever experience a fire in your home or business, make sure to call 911 ASAP! After the fire has been put out, find a place to stay with either friends, family, or a hotel.
