Two years after the devastating Fort McMurray fire in Canada, wildfire insurance problems continue to plague homeowners. In fact, only 20 percent of the destroyed homes are rebuilt. The northern Alberta saw 2,579 homes completely destroyed by the wildfire that struck in 2016. The destruction produced the highest wildfire costs in Canada until that time, as Live Insurance News reported. Donations to support those whose homes were ravaged poured in from across the country as well as the United States. Unfortunately, wildfire insurance problems have drastically held back the ability to rebuild.
