I’m going to reset this to the top and ask this question:

We’re going to see calls for the government to pay for the reconstruction of these areas. Just as those who live in the southeast know they live in risk of damage from hurricanes those who live in these areas know that there is a significant risk of fire destroying their property.

What is the government’s responsibility, if any, to people displaced and financially damaged by these fires?
