Wildfire – Witch Creek 2007

IBHS researchers studied building characteristics, property locations, insurance claims, building codes and weather patterns to determine what caused properties to be damaged or destroyed during the 2007 Witch Creek Wildfire in San Diego County, California.

The applied building science research conducted for Mega Fires: The Case for Mitigation provides data and findings that ultimately will help consumers better protect their homes against the ravages of wildfires.
