Even though no structures were damaged in the Redlands fire, insurance agents say it's a good reminder to check your homeowner's policy to make sure your property is covered for fire damage.

Experts say most basic policies include fire coverage and there's no difference between arson, wildfires or fires that were started by accident.

Insurance agents say even though it's usually included, it's better to check now rather than later.

They say coverage can vary for what's inside your home and other structures like sheds or barns, so they say the best thing to do is go line by line with your agent.
