Strange Claims Indeed 6

August 18, 2008

Claims Journal received a strange claim submission reflecting a kitchen-fire claim. While home-fires commonly initiate claims, the way this particular fire started might be unusual. The insureds apparently moved a wall mirror into their kitchen where they mounted it on an east wall. Then, after the insureds left for the market, the sun shifted and the mirror began reflecting sunlight onto a fake plant located on the other side of the kitchen, igniting it. The fire quickly spread, causing significant damage. The homeowner carrier paid for the losses.
