For instance, Allstate found that during the 2011-2014 holiday seasons, the median claim filed after property went missing after a party was $1,500. During that same time period, fires that sparked from candles and fireplaces resulted in a median $9,000 claim, while the median cost of a claim related to electrical fires was $18,000.
