PARADISE, Calif. – Action News Now continues to provide the latest updates on the recovery and rebuilding of Paradise City.
Insurance Recovery for Campfire Debris Removal Those who participated in the government-sponsored debris removal program for the 2018 campfire may have recently received a letter detailing the full cost of the cleanup. For those who had insurance at the time of the fire, Butte County Camp Fire Insurance Recovery Manager Tetra Tech will work with homeowners and insurance companies to help determine the amount to be paid to the county for cleaning. For owners who have already received insurance proceeds from their insurer related to debris removal, Tetra Tech will work with them to identify any out-of-pocket costs incurred by owners and any payments that may be required to be made to the county. Owners will not be responsible for any costs outside of their insurance policy’s available insurance coverage.
