People who lost their homes in the Black Forest Fire have a lot of questions about how to proceed with their insurance companies.

Insurance experts tried to answer some of those questions during a meeting Monday night.

Hundreds of people filled a room inside New Life Church to hear from El Paso county commissioners, insurance agents, and people who lost their homes in the Waldo Canyon Fire. They shared stories and advice to help the victims of the Black Forest Fire.

People who lost their homes say they are taking all the help they can get.

"We've been coming to all the meetings just to try to get all the information we can...all the help we can...all the support we can, phone numbers and resources because it's quite an overwhelming experience," said Bridgitte Martin, who lost her home in the fire.

"It's good to know that you're not the only one going through it, but what's been more important to me is all the people who aren't affected that have gathered around us," said fire victim Steve Cutter.

There will be another workshop on Monday, July 8 to answer questions about insurance issues for victims of the Black Forest Fire. It will be held at 6 p.m. at the Woodmen Valley Chapel at 8292 Woodmen Valley View in Colorado Springs.
