Wildfire survivors are warned to stay alert as they search for contractors to help them rebuild. A recent Contractors State License Board (CSLB) multi-agency sting operation in the city of Paradise in Butte County found unlicensed activity in the Camp Fire disaster area. Four unlicensed contractors were arrested on felony charges for contracting in a declared disaster area.
“Unlicensed and unscrupulous contractors try to take advantage of consumers rebuilding after a disaster,” said CSLB Registrar David Fogt. “Fire survivors need to check the license of any contractor they are considering before starting a rebuilding project.”
