The Blue Cut Fire earned its name because it started on the Blue Cut trail in the Cajon Pass and San Bernardino County area. While CNN reported that the fire has been contained since it first began threatening and ravaging thousands of acres around Los Angeles, other wildfires are continuing to blaze in other areas of California. The fire destroyed an estimated 96 homes and 213 outbuildings and forced the evacuation of more than 82,000 people, though these residents are now able to return.
What many of these residents are finding left of their homes, however, is ash and debris. No matter what caused this blaze, the prolonged drought has turned much of the state into a dry tinderbox just waiting to be lit, ABC News reported. No deaths have been reported and damage assessment teams are currently working to provide accurate results.
“Many residents returned to only ash and debris.”
This wildfire highlights the importance of proper insurance limits – especially in high-risk areas. Returning to ash and debris is traumatic enough without then learning of insufficient coverage amounts to rebuild a lost home and replace worldly possessions.
