Definition of 'Fire Insurance'

Fire insurance is a type of insurance that protects your property from damage caused by fire. It can also cover damage caused by lightning, explosions, and other related events.

Fire insurance is typically purchased by homeowners, renters, and businesses. The cost of fire insurance varies depending on the size and value of the property being insured, as well as the location of the property.

When you purchase fire insurance, you will be asked to provide a list of all of the items that you want to be covered. This list is called the "declarations page." The declarations page also includes information about the amount of coverage that you want, as well as your deductible.

Your deductible is the amount of money that you will have to pay out-of-pocket in the event of a fire. The higher your deductible, the lower your monthly premiums will be.

If your property is damaged by fire, you will need to file a claim with your insurance company. The insurance company will then send an adjuster to your property to assess the damage. The adjuster will determine the amount of money that you are entitled to receive.

Once the claim has been approved, the insurance company will send you a check for the amount of the claim. You can then use this money to repair or replace your damaged property.

Fire insurance is an important way to protect your property from damage caused by fire. By purchasing fire insurance, you can rest assured knowing that you will be financially protected in the event of a fire.
