What is Fire Insurance?

Fire insurance is a type of property insurance that individuals or corporate entities can opt for to cover losses or damages caused to insured property. This property can be office buildings, private property like houses, or any other place where you run your business. It is essentially a contract between the insured and the insurance provider, where the provider agrees to cover the financial loss due to a fire outbreak. Key points to note when filing a claim:
