Consequences of Smoke Damage

Although flame may seem to be the most dangerous part of a wildfire, it would be unwise to discount the effects of smoke. Smoke-related health concerns actually account for more fatalities than do burns or exposure to heat. Some of the specific consequences of exposure to smoke are:

  • Smoke inhalation
  • Eye irritation
  • Skin irritation
  • Property damage

The degree of danger and the nature of related health concerns is largely influenced by the chemical composition of the smoke. And while property damage may not seem linked to your physical health, it can be, since smoke can cause an unsafe amount of toxins in your personal property, making contact with that property harmful.
