I was listening on the news today on my when into work as the radio station interviewed a gentleman who said just that: my home burned down and I didn't have a drop of insurance.
My first thought was: then there wasn't a loan on it or he would have HAD to have insurance.
His interview went on to say that his home was over 120 years old and he couldn't get insurance. Really? I've never heard of that, to be honest??
He had lived there for 25 years. He had 53 acres of land and said only about six trees didn't burn to the ground - along with his home!
News reports tonight say over 160 homes have burned. Largest loss of homes ever in the state of Colorado. And the wind is kicking up again tonight, so who knows what we'll wake up to in the morning!
Those affected by this fire will certainly be in our prayers.
