Officials say the fire is still under investigation, as to how it started.

Insurance claims of the damaged boats have already begun. The estimates have not yet been stated on what the total economic impact to both the marina, and the boat owners will be. However, estimates will surely be in the millions.
We have published several earlier blogs on the insurance process, specifically as it relates to fire damage with marinas at www.deniedclaim.com
As reported on in earlier VLF blogs, when there is a catastrophic event of this magnitude, sometimes insurance companies will try to mitigate their losses by certain time tested tactics.
A good policyholder attorney will hold the carrier’s feet to the fire when claims arise. It is well documented that insurance carriers can sometimes implement various tactics when trying to lessen their financial exposure to claims, including: underpayment, denial, and the delay of claims. This is no surprise, given the record number of increasing weather events in the last several years (as
documented in earlier VLF blogs).
This is why it is important to consult with a reputable policyholder attorney when filing a claim, and especially if your claim has been denied, delayed, or underpaid.
