In a turn of events which demonstrates just how harmful a moment of carelessness can be, it appears that a cigarette thrown from the window of a vehicle was responsible for starting a brush fire near a Lakeland street on Wednesday, April 25. According to reports from the emergency services personnel who attended the scene, this fire eventually melted a light pole, causing it to fall into the road and back up traffic for over an hour. Florida Highway Patrol and city police and fire departments were called to the incident, where they found half a dozen trees in flames, and embers threatening to ignite more of the nearby vegetation.
While no in-depth details about the incident have been made public, it appears that the fire was caused by a lit cigarette being tossed from the window of a moving vehicle. This time, there were no injuries resulting from the careless, and downright dangerous, the behavior of the motorist but, through working as Miami fire damage attorneys, we know that not everyone is as lucky.
