Lawyer Calls Fire Settlement "Lowball"

CONIFER - An attorney representing victims of the Lower North Fork Fire near Conifer says a state claims board has offered almost $11.5 million in compensation, a figure he calls a "lowball."

Attorney Bill Finger says the proposed settlements exceed $16 million, but the board reduced those claims.

The largest offer is nearly $3.2 million for Scott Appel, whose wife Ann died in the fire.

The March 2012 controlled burn set by the Colorado State Forest Service killed three people and destroyed 24 buildings.
