Milestone Reached In Recovery Efforts For Hill, Woolsey Brush Fires

A state program to remove debris from more than 900 properties ravaged by the Hill, and Woolsey Fires is now complete. The State’s Consolidated Debris Removal program coordinated cleanup of debris, and toxic materials from homes and other buildings destroyed by the November, 2018 fires.

They removed 422 tons of debris, including 50 tons in Ventura County from land owned by participating property owners.

State officials say they’ve just submitted the final inspection reports for the 926 participating properties in Ventura and Los Angeles Counties, setting the stage for rebuilding.
