Smoke Webs

After a fire has occurred it is not uncommon to find “smoke webs” in corners or at junctions of ceilings and walls. While they hold a resemblance to spider webs they are actually soot and residue particles that form into chains and create webbed structures. This occurs when heat circulates into colder spaces, followed by ionized soot and smoke particles that form together to create these patterns.

What is the leading cause of residential fires? More fires begin in the kitchen than any other room in the home. In fact, cooking is the leading cause of house fires in the United States. Therefore, it is important to know what steps to take in order to prevent fires from starting, such as never leaving cooking unattended, keeping metals out of the microwave, and turning off appliances when not in use.
