Party Lights Cause Outdoor Electrical Fire in Rosemary Beach?

10/17/2022 (Permalink)

Outdoor electric party lights line the edge of a roof. We restore fire damage 24-hours a day in Okaloosa County.

Our local Destin, Seaside, and Freeport teams restore fire damage every year. Ocean City residents spend a lot of time outdoors, and party lights are a popular way to illuminate backyards at night.

Here is some information from the National Fire Protection Association for staying safe around electrical equipment and powerlines.

Equipment Safety

  • Have a qualified electrician do all electrical work
  • To prevent an electric shock, make sure all your outside electrical receptacles are ground-fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) protected
  • Use lighting and power tools that are listed by a qualified test laboratory and make sure they are made for outdoor use
  • Store your electric tools indoors
  • Keep electric tools away from children
  • Check lighting and extension cords for damage before using. Replace damaged cords right away.
  • Use extension cords listed by a qualified test laboratory and marked for outdoor use. Extension cords are not meant for long-term use.


Have a professional tree-cutting service trim branch that might fall on electric wiring. Use a wooden or fiberglass ladder outside. Keep the ladder at least 10 feet away from power lines. Never touch anyone or anything in contact with a downed wire. Power lines may be live; stay a safe distance away. Report downed wires to authorities right away.
