The residents of Spring Valley are no strangers to fires. As more fires break out, Spring Valley and La Presa residents may find it difficult to find home insurance.
The following three fires took place within the past year:
In September of 2010, flames came within yards of dozens of homes as a “human caused” brush fire threatened Spring Valley. As strong wind conditions were present, it only took minutes for this fire to burn 50-60 acres. With the help of 4 helicopters and 90 Firefighters, the fire was stopped and only 1 home experienced about $60,000 of damage.
The second fire was in June of 2010 where a 5 acre brush fire broke out on Dictionary Hill and was caused by someone that was clearing weeds. Fortunately, Firefighters from San Miguel, El Cajon, La Mesa and Cal Fire responded to the blaze immediately and were able to contain the fire in about an hour.
The third recent fire occurred in July 2010 in an area called Canary Hill. Although homes in this neighborhood were evacuated, the fire was quickly contained to 4 acres.
