Northern California Wildfires Rips Through Small Town

By: WebWire

With the forested region near the Oregon state line raging with the most recent wildfire within California, a small town of Klamath River, home to about 200 people, is the latest casualty of the flames. With four residents killed and most of the homes and business reduced to ash, those that remain are left picking through their lives within the shells of their homes.

EMSL Analytical, Inc. can help take the strain away from the rebuilding by testing for smoke damage, mold, asbestos, and anything else that may be brought from a wildfire. Our material science lab can test for hazardous chemicals that come from fires and damage from natural disasters.

“Unfortunately, wildfires are a common occurrence in California,” said Joseph Frasca, Senior Vice President of Marketing at EMSL Analytical, Inc. “Fire related testing for combustion by-products is a helpful tool for individuals near and far from the fire. Char, soot, and ash are often a result of wildfires, causing additional property damage that may not be visible with the naked eye.

EMSL offers tests for fire investigation and combustible by-products. The result of these tests offers valuable information related to the extent of damage produced by a fire at a residential, industrial, or wildfire location. These results can be used for cleaning assessment and/or insurance claims.
