SARATOGA SPRINGS — Officials from Saratoga Springs say all the 11 homes with interior mud and water damage from Saturday flooding are habitable.
City inspectors announced the news Monday, a day when 3,000 volunteers are inspected to continue cleaning up the city. Electricians on site report three of the homes needed their main breaker panels removed and repaired.
Heavy rain sent water and mud into homes and streets Saturday night, and caused the most problems in the northwest portion of the Jacob Ranch subdivision.
Police Chief Gary Hicken says the problems were likely the result of runoff from the scene of a 5,500-acre wildfire near Saratoga Springs in June.
A clean-up effort on Sunday drew an estimated 5,000 volunteers, some of whom had to flee from their homes Saturday night.
