fire insurance

A type of property insurance covering losses caused by fire and by damage caused in putting out the fire. Premiums will often depend on proximity to a fire station (within 5 miles is best), the rating of the fire department (all volunteer personnel with minimum equipment up to full-time personnel with all equipment), proximity to a fire hydrant, and method of construction of the property.
