Camp Fire Attorney Mike Danko interviewed with CNBC recently about the effects taking place months after the 2018 Camp Fire. Thousands of survivors are displaced from their homes and jobs to this day due to California’s most destructive wildfire. According to Mike Danko, not only did survivors lose their homes, but most of them also lost their jobs and other sources of income. During the interview, Mike stated:
“Some of the survivors are living in trailers, and others are living in parking lots in tents. People have lost not only their homes but their jobs.”
During the interview with CNBC, Attorney Mike Danko also added:
“The future for these folks is very uncertain. And even the ones who are lucky are living with family members, perhaps, and they are sleeping on couches.”
According to the CNBC article, Chico, Oroville and surrounding cities are seeing an increase in housing costs which is forcing people to live in parking lots & in tents due to PG&E’s equipment which started the Camp Fire. The Northern California Fire lawyers are hard at work to ensure that PG&E is held accountable for all the damage caused and aiding Camp Fire survivors on the road to recovery.
