Residences burned by wildfires are seen in this aerial photograph taken above Santa Rosa, California, U.S., on Thursday, Oct. 12, 2017. Wildfires that tore through northern California’s iconic wine-growing regions prompted evacuations of more than 20,000 people, killed 11 and damaged some of the most valuable vineyards and wineries in the U.S. About 1,500 commercial, residential and industrial structures were burned, and damage assessment teams have started accounting for the destruction.

Nearly two years later, survivors of the October 2017 wildfires in northern California are still facing delays in rebuilding from the devastating blazes that claimed 5,143 homes and caused more than $12 billion in losses across five counties. To date, only 399 homes have been fully rebuilt as labor shortages and other factors continue to delay construction.
