(KNX 1070) -- Just two of the 14 major wildfires to hit California this summer caused staggering property damages, according to new figures out today.

California Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones told KNX about the combined losses from the Carr and Mendocino Complex fires:

The bulk of the financial loss came from the Carr fire that destroyed several Redding neighborhoods.

These numbers do not include the Holy fire, which burned through Lake Elsinore around the same time.
