Fawn Fire Survivors Can Have Properties Cleaned For Free By The State

Shasta County is making it easy for residents whose homes were damaged or destroyed in the Fawn Fire to allow the state to clean up debris for free. Household hazardous waste removal has already been completed by the State Department of Toxic Substances Control. Phase two of the cleanup can be done for free by the State Office of Emergency Services and CalRecycle, but property owners need to complete a right-of-entry permit. It can be filled out online at ehd.co.shasta.ca.us. The deadline for that document is January 15th. They’ll tap homeowners insurance policies as much as they can, but costs not covered by insurance will not be billed to the fire survivors. Those who choose to do their own cleanup must have it done by April 1st. The demolition permit application is due by January 15th.
