Notably, wildfire can expand to adjacent properties and cause heavy damage even when the property in question may not be considered high risk, according to CoreLogic.

In Santa Rosa, 2,705 homes, with a reconstruction cost value of over $1.2 billion, are in extreme risk of susceptibility to wildfire damage, while 1,564 homes, totaling over $742 million in reconstruction cost value are at risk of extreme damage.

About 1,436 properties in Napa, and 8,355 homes in Santa Rosa, are considered in moderate or high risk of damage from the wildfires.

CoreLogic's analysis was calculated based on California homes within two core based statistical areas and on five active fires. Three are in Napa: Patrick, Atlas and Tubbs, and two are in Santa Rosa: Nuns and Pocket.
