    Panic over nothing? The Sonoma/Napa fire is already the deadliest wildfire in CA history and deaths will reach well over 100 after it's all said and done

    With the upgraded systems for install like piping, wiring, general construction it should be quicker and bring things into the present time. I was mostly thinking about homes what were custom built, many of those builders are not around anymore. I agree on the permits but I cannot imagine that going well due to some loss of records and such. Good Luck to everyone........Jetspray

    The city of Santa Rosa is fast tracking building permits for homes that are being built back according to original plans that are on file. That would include the entire Coffee Park area and many of the Foothills and Fountain Grove homes. There are one or two older homes at the end of Parker Hill road that may not be fast tracked. The foundations for homes will need to evaluated on a case by case basis. Some may be ok while others my be blown out. Sewer, water and gas will still be there so those often troublesome permits won't be as difficult. PG&E may or may not charge for temporary poles, no decision on that yet from what I've heard. One thing for sure, it will take a long time. FEMA has the option to buy the property if it's deemed a repeatable disaster in the area. Obviously it is in some areas so owners may be given the option to sell or not receive assistance the next time. That happened out on the Russian River. FEMA abandons the property and it cannot be built on again. Tough but if you think about it, it makes good sense.

    Re: California Is Burning

    Spent the day in Napa at the Silverado Country club assessing home/property damage. I'm not posting anymore pics due to the sensitivity and privacy that I want to respect. Met some awesome neighbors who experienced no loss and yet are just as emotionally effected from their neighbors loss. That community is pulling together and they'll be back soon.

    Re: California Is Burning

    I am always wondering how people put up with a house fire no matter with where it is. Hurricane, Tornado, Earthquake, even some floods, there are still somethings that survive the destruction. A fire removes everything and it all has to be replaced, even down to a single item nothing remains. I see the destruction and understand what it is mostly total. Their hearts cry out for sympathy and solice, I understand, I have donated.........Jetspray
