The Douglas County Website has additional information about Germann Road Fire. Maps / “Fire Map Book” / Air Quality Information can be found here: http://douglascountywi.org/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=226
The “Fire Map Book” is a large document and may take a while to download. Just so you know what the parcel with improved values chart means (page 2)…..there were approximately 400 land parcels within the entire red fire affected area. Of those 400 land parcels, there were 85 land parcels with improved values (based on tax assessments). This indicates that some improvement was done to the land…garage, home, cabin, other building. The parcels with structure loss (page 3) are those in which some type of structure was lost on the property.
The Office of Commissioner of Insurance will make available assistance for property owners filing claims who have been impacted by the fire. Homeowners can contact the OCI helpline for assistance with their homeowners insurance coverage. Go to OCI.wi.gov or call 800-236-8517.
