San Bernardino Wildfire-Helping Fire Victims Rebuild
A small but fast-moving brush fire that broke out on a Southern California hillside has burned five structures and injured three people.
A spokesman for the San Bernardino County Fire Department says the fire broke out in the northern part of the city Saturday afternoon and quickly spread to about 10 acres before firefighters got a handle of the blaze.
Capt. Jeremy Kern said authorities evacuated residents in the four blocks closest to the fire.
Kern said investigators were trying to determine what kinds of structures were burned and the extent of their damage.
If you, a neighbor, a family member or a friend has been a victim of the fires, then we would like to offer our sincere condolences for your extreme loss, and perhaps some important information on rebuilding.
What is your best option for rebuilding? There are newer construction techniques available in California that can shave months off your rebuild and we want you to know about this. Here are a few tips that may shorten your road to recovery:
Use Local, State and Federal resources to help with temporary housing.
Contact your insurance company to determine the available temporary displacement coverage and available coverage for a rebuild replacement home.
Contact a reliable and trustworthy General Contractor that can offer design/build services. Modular Construction may be your best choice for recovery!
Contact your local Building Department to determine if they will waive the fees and expedite the building permit process.
Modular Construction: Rebuilding your home using modular construction will shorten the build time while at the same time building a high quality home built to the local building codes. During a disaster like the San Bernardino fires, local contractors are overwhelmed with the number of requests to build new homes. At this time, there is a shortage of tradesmen working in the construction field to build the homes ASAP. Having your home assembled in a factory shortens the rebuild time by months, and possibly years. Homes built using modular construction are built using the same materials and codes as site built homes, but are built “stronger and better” as they are built in a climate controlled environment by a team of experienced tradesmen in a matter of weeks, not months or years.
Off-Site Modular Construction can help you, your family members, friends and acquaintances in your community to get back to the life you knew before the devastating wildfires. Visit USModular, Inc. website for information on building with modular construction.
