Fairview Fire Attorneys
The Fairview Fire is a destructive and deadly wildfire that has burned nearly 30,000 acres in Riverside County, California. Initially ignited on September 5th, the fire has killed at least two people, seriously injured at least four others, and damaged or destroyed well over 40 structures.
While there is not much information about the ignition source at this time, the dry conditions in the area and throughout California allowed the blaze to grow quickly.

What Should Fire Loss Victims Do?
If you live in an area near the Fairview Fire, your health and safety is the most important thing during a wildfire crisis. Please comply with evacuation orders issued by authorities. If you have time, or have not yet been evacuated, you may take steps to prepare your home for a wildfire and make an inventory of your possessions in case your home is destroyed.
However, if you have already been affected by the Fairview Fire, you are likely facing significant uncertainty. You may be dealing with financial hardships due to evacuation, finding alternate housing, lost wages, and property damage. Your home may have been damaged or destroyed entirely. You may have even suffered serious injury or lost a loved one.
While many people have homeowners and wildfire insurance policies, victims are often left with significant losses that are not covered by insurance companies. Insurers rarely compensate victims adequately to rebuild their homes, replace personal property, or replace mature landscaping. Additionally, insurance policies do not cover the annoyance and discomfort associated with losing your home, having to move, or completely rebuilding. The only way to recover compensation for these losses is by filing a claim against the negligent party. At Panish | Shea | Boyle | Ravipudi LLP, we have the resources to fully investigate the fire and identify and hold accountable all negligent parties
