One of your children are holding something that just sparked…then seconds later you hear your other child screaming from upstairs, “Fire! Fire! Fire in the attic!!” 🔥🔥

This all too common scenario is causing families to lose their homes and even worst every day. Sounds serious, right? But wait, it gets much worst. In fact, it’s so bad that some attorney’s specialize in these claims!

Every year, when lightning strikes, homes are virtually blowing up because of a little known issue – CSST DANGER.

CSST – Corrugated Stainless Steel Tubing – has been the go to for new and remodeled homes as a PRIMARY gas source since the 90’s. It’s lightweight, flexible and easy to install and CHEAPER than it’s alternatives.

However, CSST is turning families on their heads from the massive fires it causes.

When lighting strikes, it takes the shortest path to ground and it arcs and hits the CSST which punches pinholes into the gas line. When you have an ignition (pinhole in CSST) and a gas source (hole in CSST), you have a torch.
