Call for attention to electricity fires associated with power restoration September 12, Chiba, Japan 11:50
Due to the impact of Typhoon No. 15, power outages continue to occur in Chiba Prefecture in a wide area, but in the prefecture, there will be a “conducting fire” that will cause fires from damaged wiring and broken electrical appliances as power is restored. It calls for attention as there is a risk of doing so.
According to the Chiba Prefecture Fire Department, “electric fires” often occur when an electrical cord is damaged or an appliance falls due to an earthquake.
In this typhoon, the roof and walls of the building are damaged, so the prefecture and the fire department pull out the electrical outlet and turn off the electric breaker when leaving home or office And we call on to prevent "electric fire".
