SAN DIEGO -- Patrick O'Sullivan and his wife, Pat, named their Rancho Bernardo home Adelante as part of an old Irish tradition. They've lived in it for less than two years.
"We walked in here and it took us 30 seconds to be at home," Patrick O'Sullivan said.
Adelante was built on the same property where their old home once stood. That home burned to the ground during the vicious Witch Fire in 2007. 10News cameras captured the home being destroyed and showed the O'Sullivans the video a few days later.
For California, the typical “fire season” is a thing of the past; wildfires now happen year-round. 2010 presents some additional concerns after a winter of above normal rainfall. The Central Coast can expect the growth of a lot of brush and grasses, which, when the weather becomes dryer, provides the potential for fires to move much more rapidly, and carry a lot more heat into heavier fuels. The American Red Cross, Santa Barbara County Chapter wants you to prepare for the possibility of fires happening anytime and anywhere.
Victims of the Fourmile Fire have filed insurance claims worth $217 million, making it the most expensive wildfire in Colorado history, according to the Rocky Mountain Insurance Information Association.
The fire destroyed 169 homes in Boulder County on Sept. 6. In addition to completely destroyed homes, the claims include smoke damage, additional living expenses and damaged vehicles, according to the insurance association.
