A major fire will typically result in several types of damage. A structure or possessions could be water damaged, or there may be damage caused by the fire itself. This can include ashing, charring, melting, or other distortion or destruction from the heat. Other lesser damages may result in items or structures that are somewhat scorched, soot-covered, or have an odor of smoke from the fire.
Fires also can release a number of hazardous materials, such as PCBs from transformers, toxic chemicals from labs and industrial locations, and asbestos from insulation of pipes. In addition, electrical lines may still be energized after a fire.
