Why do I have spider webs after a fire?

Stove fire, soot, black, webs Soot tags form after a fire that have the appearance of spider webs.

What are some noticeable signs of a fire besides the obvious? If you have experienced a fire it may surprise you or even creep you out to see these spider looking webs in higher places along your doors and ceiling. There is a name and reason. They are called soot webs or (soot tags) even in smaller fires these webs are common. What does fire create? HEAT! When you feel heat what do you want to do? Get to a cooler area right? It is the same with hot air that moves causing the smoke and soot to move along with it. In an area that has lower air circulating the particles are what forms the web like threads to appear. The fire that took place in this home was unfortunate. SERVPRO of Oak Park Ferndale received the call. If you or anyone you know has had a fire loss and are unsure what company to turn to.
