As California endures its fifth year of a crippling drought, the dry landscape is especially susceptible to wildfires as temperatures increase. Southern California is once again entering into fire season, and experts are saying this could be the hottest year ever, surpassing even last year's record fire season. In fact, fire seasons now are 78 days longer, on average, than they were in 1970.
Wildfires can seriously damage or destroy any homes in its path. This devastating situation can be made even worse by discovering that your homeowner's insurance won't cover the cost of repairing or rebuilding your home. You may find that your insurance policy will only cover some of the damage, but not enough to completely rebuild your life before the fire.
