The Cause of the Holiday Farm Fire
Here's what we know, the Holiday Farm Fire destroyed 768 of the homes, business and outbuildings evaluated so far which to put things in perspective is nearly 2 out of every 3 structures examined to date.
Kris Brandt stated - “I would have guessed it was a transformer exploding but I can’t confirm,” he said, later adding that he thinks power should have been cut earlier because of high winds and dry conditions.
Jonathan Farmer, a spokesman, told The Oregonian/OregonLive last week that as winds rose and conditions began to deteriorate on Labor Day evening, the utility began to get multiple outage calls in the area. But it did not shut down its distribution system until early Tuesday morning.
You Are Entitled to Compensation With or Without Insurance
If I have insurance do I need a lawyer?
Insurance will not cover all losses for three main reasons:
- Most people are underinsured.
- Insurance does not pay to replace your possessions with new items but instead will pay a depreciated amount.
- Many categories of damages are outside of the purview of insurance coverage completely.

We have helped many home-owners and renters who did not have insurance at the time of the fire. If the fire was caused by someone who is negligent, careless or deliberate behavior you are entitled to compensation.
