Wildfire families file insurance claims

AMARILLO, TX - Dozens of Willow Creek families try to recover what was lost from Sunday's roaring wildfires.

Families we met Tuesday say, the waiting game continues as they are on stand by to see what exactly their insurance providers will cover.

"I know how much my policy is for, but we won't know for certain until we list everything out and they decide what they are going to give us." said Kathy Lundegreen, whose family lost their barn.

NewsChannel 10, called around to the various insurance companies that we noticed out assessing damage. Those companies say, they were too busy working claims to spare a few moments to speak with us on camera. However, we are told the majority of the homes in the Willow Creek area were insured. By law, if you have a mortgage, you have to have home insurance. Insurance agents also say, even though the fire was sparked by a man, it is being ruled as a natural disaster.  When dealing with these policies, claims for the families will go under that natural disaster umbrella.
