Wildfire Claims Approach $1 Billion

Insurance claims resulting from the Sevier County wildfires have risen more than $100 million from previously reported figures, and now total nearly $1 billion, Knoxnews reports. The most recent report from the Tennessee Department of Commerce and Insurance shows total claims from residential and commercial property at upwards of $943 million, nearly double the losses initially estimated by Sevier County Mayor Larry Waters in December. Tennessee attorneys can still volunteer to help with relief effort by signing up via the TBA website.
