The trama of a fire is great. Glad no one was hurt. If you have not done so start doing a complete inventory of everthing that burned up. Make a complete list of everthing. Do not do a bulk guess, on items, it will cost you. Consider anything with an circuit board history. It maybe working now but in a few months when it dies the insurance company will, may not pay for it then.
ins.sent three investigators plus flew a fire engineer in ,couldnt find a source,,,,,also sent a equip.specialist in ,he said everything is gone write it all up.even the things that i thought were ok

Hopefully not the same today but if so maybe this is justice.
not the same company, probably talking about Bud Laroe , Hawk of Miami Fort Apache

Kevin, when you cut Hydraulic hose it sometimes will leave a small bit of smoldering residue. In our shop we have a metal trash can that we use to knock out/blow out the cutting residue/dust. We have had to put it out a couple of times. We do not put any thing else in that can.
