Claim Description

There was a fire at the Insured’s day spa premises which caused extensive damage to the property. The landlord claimed for costs relating to property damage. The cause of fire was the spontaneous combustion of towels that had been stacked into shelving shortly after removal from a dryer. The towels were packed whilst hot and the presence of residue oils in the fabric of the towels contributed to the spontaneous combustion.


The Insured claimed under the policy and the Insurer paid $65,000 to the Insured.
