Officials have estimated the wildfires in Northern California have destroyed nearly 7,000 homes and buildings and caused about $1 billion in damage, according to the Associated Press.

Those numbers are expected to rise as crews continue to assess areas scorched by the blazes.

State Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones said the preliminary dollar valuation of losses came from claims filed with the eight largest insurance companies in the affected areas and did not include uninsured property.

The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection’s estimate of homes and structures destroyed was boosted to 6,900 from 5,700 after fire crews returned and assessed hard-hit neighborhoods, said spokesman Daniel Berlant.

The Northern California wildfires are considered the most deadliest in state history as 42 people have been killed.
