Some insurance companies are choosing not to renew policies in wildfire-prone areas of the inland Northwest. That’s sending home owners scrambling to find new coverage for their properties.
Northwest-based insurers such as Pemco and Grange Insurance are getting choosier about how much risk they'll take on. This according to property owners who've been dropped recently and posted about their frustrations online.
One customer from Chelan, Washington, complained Pemco refused to renew her homeowners insurance despite 17 years with no claims. The common thread among the non-renewals is location in wildfire country.
