SERVPRO Assists Fire Victims in Redding, California
Wildfires are a yearly, often tragic reality in the West Coast states. While we in the Treasure Valley area have been pretty fortunate in this regard, it is easy for us to empathize with those now facing loss from the historically large fires devastating parts of California. We at SERVPRO of Boise feel just as strongly about this, and we want to help.
This is why SERVPRO of Boise has sent a crew of technicians down to California to assist in the recovery and restoration effort. Our crews possess valuable skills, training, and experience related to both fire and water damage restoration that we want to put to use in areas where local resources are overwhelmed. Areas devastated by the Carr Fire are where our efforts have taken place.
The Carr Fire, located near Redding, began on July 23 from a trailer tire that went flat and started scraping the ground, causing sparks to ignite vegetation. Now four weeks old, the fire has burned 229,651 acres and is 88 percent contained. The fire has destroyed 1,079 homes and 22 commercial structures, making it the most destructive fire in Shasta County history. Eight deaths also have been linked to the fire. We at SERVPRO are confident that our team has been able to make a difference to some of the home and business owners affected by this tragedy.
SERVPRO of Boise is always standing by locally to respond if you have a water or fire emergency. Call us at (208) 375-0300 and we’ll make it “Like it never even happened.”
