Earlier this month, 71-year-old East Texas resident Jimmie Finn was sadly found dead after perishing in a mobile home fire in Tyler, Texas. The structure was a total loss.

Fire and Explosion Crews Arrived Quickly

According to officials in Smith County, the incident was called in at 2:45 AM. Volunteer fire departments from the areas of Chapel Hill, Jackson Heights, and Whitehouse responded, along with the Smith County Emergency Services District 2, the Smith County Sheriff’s Office, and the Smith County Fire Marshal’s Office.

When crews arrived, the mobile home was fully involved in the fire, and search and rescue operations began.

How Tyler Fires and Explosions in Tyler and other East Texas Communities Typically Happen

Here are a few of the most common ways these tragedies can occur:

  • Faulty Wiring and Electrical Malfunctions
    One of the most common causes of fires and explosions resulting from negligence is faulty wiring and electrical malfunctions. This can occur in homes, businesses, and other properties. When electrical systems are not installed or maintained properly, they can cause electrical fires, electrocutions, and other serious accidents.
  • Negligent Maintenance of Gas Lines and Appliances
    Gas leaks are a leading cause of explosions in the United States. Gas leaks can be caused by corrosion, wear and tear, lack of maintenance, or improper installation of gas lines or gas-powered appliances.
  • Negligent Construction and Renovation
    Regulatory codes are in place to ensure that buildings are constructed safely and to prevent fires and other accidents. For homeowners and their neighbors, negligent building construction or renovation can be a disaster waiting to happen.
