Survivors Of 2017 California Wildfires Out Of ALE Benefits
Survivors Of 2017 California Wildfires Out Of ALE Benefits, Their Homes Not Yet Rebuilt
In the wake of California’s catastrophic wildfires, many people have tried putting their lives back together. The process of rebuilding can feel like a second hardship. One not inflicted by nature, but rather, by the insurance company they thought would protect them.
Among the more than 4,600 homes destroyed in the Tubbs fire in October 2017 was that of 72-year-old Narsi Samii.
The catastrophic fire exploded through a neighborhood in Santa Rosa, California. This all happened in the middle of the night. It happened to Samii and his family. They fled to a hotel and eventually to a two-bedroom rental apartment.
That rental unit was less than a mile from their burned-down home. He and his wife hoped to begin the painful, slow process of rebuilding their 5-bedroom, 3-bathroom custom house.
They’d called it home since 1989. It is where they raised their two children and where Samii enjoyed cultivating his mature orchard and garden. “I’m paying $3,500 a month for a property that doesn’t exist,” said Samii, who evacuated again last week because of the Kincade fire.
