Claremont, CA

Claremont, CA: (Mar-29-07) The Padua Fire or the 2003 Grand Prix Fire ripped across foothill slopes after starting in Fontana and destroying upward of 135 homes. More than 60 Palmer Canyon residents filed suit against the city, alleging it did not properly clear brush on land it owns nearby, providing fuel for the wildfire. In a settlement reached, the city of Claremont agreed to pay $17.5 million as compensation. The settlement money will be shared by the 62 plaintiffs in the case and will be used to rebuild homes after barriers to development, including the rebuilding of key infrastructure, are cleared through Los Angeles County officials.
