The state Supreme Court is tying an word company’s payout in a large northwestern Wisconsin wildfire.
Logging apparatus owned by Ray Duerr Logging LLC sparked a Germann Road Fire in Douglas County in May 2013. The glow consumed about 7,442 acres, broken 17 homes and forced dozens to evacuate.
Secura Insurance insured Duerr during a time of a fire. The process contained a $2 million total extent as good as a $500,000 per-occurrence extent for indemnification due to glow outset from logging.
A state appeals justice ruled a $2 million extent applied, anticipating there was an occurrence any time a glow widespread to a new square of property.
The Supreme Court overturned that statute on Oct. 29, anticipating a glow was a singular occurrence and a $500,000 extent applies.
