BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - The deadline is approaching to apply for government-backed clean-up of property impacted by the Camp Fire.

State officials are calling the aftermath of the Camp Fire the largest debris post-fire cleanup in California History.

At a press conference Thursday, residents and lawmakers gathered at the Paradise Town Hall to discuss the debris removal process including a critical deadline for the state-sponsored cleanup. 

The official deadline to apply for government-backed clean up of property is Jan. 31. 

To participate, residents must fill out and submit a right-of-entry form by the deadline date. 

If property owners have insurance that covers debris removal, those owners may be required to pay out that portion of their insurance reserved for debris. 

Lawmakers say that 60 percent of survivors are going with the state-sponsored program, but the remainder appears to be undecided. This could be because they are unsure about getting support from the government or they just don't know enough about their insurance coverage. 

Survivors can opt out of the program and hire their own properly licenses contractors, but it would be at cost to the homeowner. A work plan must also be approved by the county. 

Butte County Supervisor Doug Teeter said that if residents have any additional questions about the insurance coverage or clean up, they should attend a Camp Fire Debris Removal Community Meeting
