Demotech and Athenium Analytics Host Webinar on California Fires
Columbus, Ohio, December 12, 2018: 2018 has set the record for the largest area of burned acreage in a single fire season in California, more than 1,667,000 acres. The dollar amount of damage associated with the acreage is an estimated $3 billion. Nearly 7,600 fires burned or are burning in 2018. All this on the heels of active 2016 and 2017 fire seasons. Although the insurance industry is positioned to respond to covered losses, the breadth, scope and extent of personal trauma and physical damage to Californians is overwhelming.
Demotech and Athenium Analytics hosted a webinar describing the magnitude of the recent fire season in the Golden State, including information on the underlying conditions and causes of Holy Fire, Mendocino Complex, Cranston, Carr, Holiday, West, Klamathon, Creek and Pawnee, Woolsey, Camp and the other wildfires.
