What you need to do:
Make sure your home is structurally safe. After the fire has been extinguished, the fire officers will thoroughly examine the building and will advise you of any structural or other defects that they can see. If the building is considered unsafe by the emergency services:
Fire officers will contact the local building control officer, access may be fenced off. They may shore up or demolish the property to avoid danger to the public.
When the emergency services leave, you are responsible for the security of your property. Your insurers will expect you to make sure your home is secure. Remove all valuables from the property if it is safe to do so, and close all doors and windows. You should contact a 24-hour fire damage restoration company like ServiceMaster by Lovejoy.
