Fire Insurance

Top 5 causes of Fires:

    Electrical short circuits.

    Cooking & Heating mishaps.


    Careless smoking.

    Flammable Liquids.

From the above list, we can understand that a Fire mishap can happen anywhere at any time and to anyone. It is extremely necessary that we protect ourselves and our property from the hazards of fire's destructive force.

Fire insurance indemnifies the insured against the financial loss which the latter may suffer due to destruction of or damage to property or goods, caused by fire, during a specified period.

It can cover all moveable and immoveable properties on land of the insured.

Who can take a Fire Insurance policy?

Any person or organization with insurable interest in the property such as:



    Pawnee/Pawn broker

    Official receiver or assignee in insolvency proceedings

    Traders in stocks

    A person in lawful possession
