Did you know that the 2019 Wildfire Risk Report from Core Logic, an industry analytics firm, ranked Santa Fe 12th out of the top 15 metropolitan areas in the Western United States for high and extreme wildfire risk to structures?
In the report, it stated that 23,546 homes in the Santa Fe area face high to extreme wildfire risk. Exacerbated by the Southwest’s 22-year drought, the report cited that homes close to high-risk vegetation in locations where high intensity wildfires have a tendency to reoccur are the most at risk.
