Who Could Have Caused the Construction Fire?

There are many reasons for fires on construction sites which may include, but are not limited to:

  1. Equipment problems. Equipment that malfunctions or is not properly maintained may ignite and cause a fire.
  2. Lack of safety rules. If employers or construction workers are careless, then a fire can begin. For example, if smoking is allowed on construction sites, a fire could begin.
  3. Faulty wiring.
  4. Portable heating equipment.
  5. Lightening.

Fires on construction sites may spread quickly because of exposed wood, paint, and chemicals that may quickly ignite.
