Mosquito Fire Structure Status Map
CAL FIRE’s DINS (Damage Inspection Specialist) Team began assessments as soon as it was safe for them to do so. The DINS Team reports findings on property damage on three levels: Not affected, Damaged or Destroyed. If a property is Damaged or Destroyed the DINS Team will take a picture of the property and post it to a website; if the property is not affected, there will not be a picture. Field damage assessments will be on-going throughout the duration of the incident, and information will be added to our website as it becomes available. If you discover that your home address has not yet been assessed, check back periodically for additional assessment updates.
