Hostile Fire

Definition of "Hostile fire"

Unfriendly fire not confined to its normal habitat. For example, fire in the fireplace leaps onto the sofa. Property contracts protect against damage from a hostile fire, not from damage from fire in the fireplace, its normal habitat. The insurance is designed to cover fortuitous loss, which the hostile fire is.
