The flames and heat has the possibility of burning a majority of material within your home depending how long it takes for the fire to be put out. Once the fire is put out, smoke is the next danger in your home. Smoke leaves behind soot which a grey or black powdery substance. This tends to get all over your home. Along with soot residue, there is odor which is unhealthy to breathe.
