CAL-VET ON DUTY HELPING VETERANS WITH HOMES DAMAGED BY FOUNTAIN FIRE
 SACRAMENTO, Calif., Aug. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Help is just a phone call away for veterans with Cal-Vet homes destroyed or damaged in the Fountain Fire, now raging out of control 30 miles east of Redding on State Highway 299, California Department of Veterans Affairs (CDVA) Director Benjamin T. Hacker announced Friday.
 "As we did in the aftermath of the East Bay Hills Fire in Alameda County, Cal-Vet remains committed to assist California veterans and their families recover from disasters such as this latest firestorm in Shasta County," said Hacker.
 As of today, of approximately 67 Cal-Vet homes located in or near the fire area, two have been totally destroyed and the Cal-Vet home owners have submitted fire insurance claims.
 To report a fire insurance claim, Cal-Vet home owners should call GAB Business Services Inc. at 800-626-1613, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The call is toll-free. For emergencies at any other time, call 800-621-5410.
 Veterans may also contact Cal-Vet's Redding office at 916-224-4955 for assistance, or they may wish to visit the office at 2115 Churn Creek Rd.
 Under contract with Cal-Vet, Cravens-Dargan and Co. administers fire insurance on all Cal-Vet properties except mobile homes and some condominiums. GAB, under contract with Cravens-Dargan, adjusts all fire insurance losses for Cal-Vet.
 The fire insurance does not cover damage to personal property or contents. However, the Cal-Vet policy covers additional living expenses if the veteran must move to a temporary residence while the Cal-Vet property is repaired or rebuilt.
 To contact CDVA in Sacramento, the toll-free number is 800-952-5626.
