This article shows the difficulty in recognizing electrical damages that are causes from those that are consequences of a fire. Different types of mechanical damages to electrical cables illustrate the difficulty in starting an electrical fire. Damages to electrical cables in a fire environment are also illustrated. Some field cases are discussed. Many normal consequences of fires are often taken as the cause.
