More Than 200 Properties Hit By Woolsey, Hill Fires Now Cleared Of Debris

More than 200 properties in Ventura, and Los Angeles Counties hit by the Woolsey, and Hill fires have now been cleared under a state run debris removal program. 24 parcels have been cleared in Ventura County, and 185 in Los Angeles County.

Qualified property owners who opt in to the state run program can get debris removed with no upfront costs.

The land is assessed before cleanup efforts take place to make sure that any hazardous materials like asbestos can be cleaned up safely.
