Erskine Fire Attorneys: Update on Dangerous Kern County Wildfire

[profileleft]Erskine Fire Attorneys[/profileleft]Wildfires are one of the scariest forces of nature.  People can see them coming and smell them coming.  People understand the dangers these wildfires force upon anything and everything in their paths.  Despite all of this understanding, there is little if anything people can do when a wildfire approaches.  The best choice to make, obviously, is to get out of its way, but that may force people to choose to give up everything that they have.  Sadly, people in Kern County are being forced into this difficult choice today as a large wildfire is burning out of control.  If you are forced to leave your home or business because of this fire, you may also need to seek legal advice from Erskine fire attorneys who can help you decide how you’re going to pick up the pieces of your life.

About the Erskine Fire

The Erskine Fire started at approximately 5 p.m. on Thursday, June 23.  At this point, the cause of the fire either has not been determined or it has not been released to the public.  The fire is burning in the Lake Isabella area of Kern County.  Lake Isabella is approximately 40 miles outside of Bakersfield.  As of the morning of Friday, June 24, the fire has grown to an estimated 8,000 acres and it is 0% contained by firefighters.  350 firefighters are on the scene with many more on the way.  100 structures have already been lost and another 1,500 are being threatened.

The following areas have been evacuated:

  • Bella Vista
  • South Fork
  • Weldon
  • Onyx
  • Lakeland Estates
  • Mountain Mesa
  • South Lake
  • Squirrel Valley
  • Yankee Canyon

Highway 178 at Highway 155 and Sierra Way has been closed.  To make matters potentially worse, the forecast calls for more hot, dry and windy conditions for the next day or two.  The weather, when combined with the terrain that’s filled with trees and brush, could lead to a very dangerous situation in which the Erskine Fire could grow quickly.  We send our thoughts and support to the courageous firefighters and other rescue personnel who are moving quickly to take on this fire.  We also hope that everyone affected is able to get out of the fire’s path safely.

How Erskine Fire Attorneys Can Help

If you are facing the prospect of losing your home or business structure because of the Erskine Fire, you need to make sure that you and your loved ones are safe above all else including any pets.  Do not risk your life or those of others in an attempt to save property.  If you are told to evacuate by safety officials, you should do so.  Grab whatever valuables you can and get out of the fire’s way.  If your home or business is ultimately lost to the fire, you should file the appropriate insurance claims as soon as possible.  You should also make sure to contact the Erskine Fire attorneys at Gomez Trial Attorneys immediately so that you can schedule a free initial consultation.  You need to be able to make decisions regarding your situation with a foundation of knowledge.  We wish everyone the best and hope that this fire can be contained quickly.

Update – Friday, June 24, 4 p.m.

The Erskine Fire continues to spin and grow out of control.  According to this report from KTLA, the fire has now grown to more than 19,000 acres and destroyed approximately 80 homes.  Worst of all, two people have lost their lives because of the fire.  Our thoughts go out to them and to their families and friends.
