Woolsey Fire, Camp Fire And Tinder Dry Conditions
The recent wildfires in California, including the Woolsey Fire and the Camp Fire, have been incredibly devastating. According to estimates from the Insurance Information Institute, they are likely to be the most expensive on record. Countless Californians lost their homes or property because of these fires. The effects of 2018 wildfires include:
- 8.5 million burned acres
- A number of fatalities, including 88 from the Camp Fire alone
- More than 10,000 insurance claims
These wildfires, especially the Woolsey Fire, Camp Fire and Hill Fire, have had a huge effect on the lives of many Californians. Tinder dry conditions from years of drought and increased fuels mean that a spark in the wrong place could start the next blaze. Being within an evacuation perimeter takes an emotional toll and the waiting to learn whether a home survived can become excruciating. Across California over the last two years, thousands of homes, businesses and other property were damaged or destroyed.
