Reuters - Firefighters scrambled on Thursday to contain a deadly wildfire that has forced the evacuation of hundreds of residents and gutted dozens of homes near the coast of central California. Ten percent of the so-called Soberanes Fire had been brought under control but a larger swathe of flames was threatening some 2,000 properties after destroying 34 homes and 10 outbuildings between Big Sur and the scenic coastal town of Carmel-by-the-Sea since it erupted on Friday, officials said. The blaze burned through drought-stricken chaparral, tall grass and timber in its march through over 23,500 acres (9,510 hectares) at the edge of the Los Padres National Forest, where 350 residents have been evacuated, according to fire officials.

Claims Management - When a structure becomes significantly damaged, the analysis usually begins with the question, “Does it make sense to repair this or start from scratch?” From an engineering standpoint (spoiler alert), the answer is almost always “Yes, it can be repaired.” But just because it can be repaired doesn’t necessarily mean that it makes sense to do so. More often than not, the decision becomes an economic question with many components that rest comfortably outside the traditional engineering realm. It involves questions revolving around subjects like salvage value, policy limits, construction cost, depreciation, service life, current construction environment, business interruption cost, and building code requirements.

Journal Inquirer - Residents of South Windsor and the surrounding area on Thursday expressed their frustration, desperation, and disappointment that the state cannot force insurance or concrete companies to help them with crumbling foundations. Attorney General George Jepsen said last week the state has no legal authority to compel insurance companies or J.J. Mottes Co., the Stafford concrete company at the center of the ongoing crumbling foundations problem, to aid residents. He was in attendance at Thursday night’s meeting of the Connecticut Coalition Against Crumbling Basements, a group formed to address the widespread problem of crumbling foundations throughout the state.
