BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - Insurance claims from last month's California wildfires are already at $9 billion, according to State Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones. 

He also said that the number is likely to rise. 

Of the $9 billion, around $7 billion of those claims have come from those affected by the Camp Fire. The rest comes from the Woolsey and Hill Fires in Southern California. 

There are more than 28,000 claims for residential personal property, nearly 2,000 from commercial property and 9,400 in auto and other claims for the fires.

The welcome relief of showers will be with us this evening! They will continue to push through most places in the valley. Some places may not see some rain given their proximity to the mountains and the effects of a rain shadow
