The wind caused the fire to grow from a brush fire into several structures on Plaintiff’s property. The fire also caused Plaintiff’s animals on the property to run for safety as the fire progressed. The damage to the property included the destruction and burning of trees, plants, fences, irrigation systems, roofs, as well as the cleanup costs and new irrigation.
