In 2003 San Diego experienced one of the worst fires in its cities history and the third largest in California's history.
Over 273,246 acres burned with 2,232 homes lost, 22 commercial buildings, and 15 unfortunate fatalities, the total amount for the loss was an estimated $1.333 billion.
Many SERVPRO franchises rallied together in order to get home and property owners back into their houses as soon as possible.
