Kevin Underwood, Age 48, Homeowner

Witness statement:
It started with the basement clean-up after the flood last spring. I shouldn’t have scrimped on the handyman who did the renovation – he fixed the drywall and carpet but said the electrical was fine and didn’t need to be replaced. Today I spent the entire day cleaning my carpets in the rest of the house with a steam cleaner I rented when I heard a weird popping noise come from the basement and noticed a burning smell. I went downstairs and I couldn’t believe it! There were flames coming from the breaker panel. I grabbed my cell phone and called 9-1-1 and got out of the house.
