About 1,100 claims valued at $35 million have been filed as a result of the Caughlin Ranch and Washoe Drive fires, according to insurance carrier reports gathered by the Nevada Division of Insurance. “I just really think when you live in a place like we do with hills and wildfire, people really need to go through it and review” their policy, said Caryl Batts, who lost her home in the Caughlin Fire last November. “Most people don’t know (their policy).” The Nov. 18 Caughlin Fire, started by power lines arcing in high winds, burned nearly 1,900 acres and destroyed 26 homes. One man died of a heart attack while evacuating.
