A person had to exit a burning building via a flight of steps. They are now claiming insurance for a permanent loss of smell.They have been to a doctor who has stated that they cannot detect one way or another if the loss of smell has gone. As it is now an insurance case I would like to know if it is possible to lose sense of smell from the inhalation of fire smoke?
