Recent Oklahoma Wildfires Result in 340 Insurance Claims

August 15, 2012

Recent wildfires in Oklahoma have resulted in at least 340 insurance claims statewide, authorities say, but many victims don’t have homeowners insurance.

The Oklahoma Insurance Department (OID) said it is working with other state agencies and charitable organizations to provide assistance to wildfire victims.

“This is a major disaster,” said Insurance Commissioner John D. Doak. “It will take a coordinated effort, over a long period of time, to help these communities get back on their feet.”

Doak added that the goal is “to make sure both the insured and uninsured get all the help they need, as quickly as they need.”
