How Dixie Fire Victims Can Receive Compensation
At the end of October, CBS Sacramento News reported that the Dixie Fire, which started on July 13, 2021, is now one-hundred percent contained. However, sadly, it has left 963,309 fire-burned acres and thousands of displaced and injured Northern California residents.

How Long Do I Have to File a Dixie Fire Claim?
The statute of limitations in California Wildfire claims is two years from the date the damage occurred.

Missing the two-year window can cost you the financial compensation you deserve.
