I almost lit up a school one time when I was doing a putty glaze window, there was a mouse or squirrel nest under the wooden sill and a piece of putty lit up and fell and touched off the nest.  I now carry fire extinguishers in all vehicles and make my employees take them out for any windows involving a propane torch.  Glad your insurance is gonna help.  I just purchased a chevy duramax diesel 3/4 ton and pulled my 45 horse tractor to go and process a semi load of wood for my sister yesterday.  Man what a difference that truck makes.

I have at least one extinguisher on every piece of equipment and vehicle.

Saved a truck last year.  The $300 or 400 I spent on a dozen fire bottles was really cheap compared to burning up a $10,000 truck fully loaded with $1500 of firewood.

Sorry for your trouble, that really stinks.  I always thought getting a few of those little fire extinguishers  for some of my equipment. That's a good reminder.
Hope your getting it gone again soon.
