I can't answer your question in dollars but if what you are referring to is loss, say in forest fires, I would have to say zero, in structures and low in timber lost. We may have an occasional brush fire but rarely do we have big fires that overtake homes. With over 60 % of our county being national forest, I say that is a pretty good record. Our rangers do controlled burns on occasions. And most years, not counting the last two with draught, we are in a low fire risk area. Hope that answers your question if not try the Extension Service 828-389-6305, perhaps they can get you that information.
