Displaced Renter And Victim Of The Marshall Fire Shares His Story

Even after Colorado Attorney General Phil Weiser has warned service providers against increasing prices in the wake of the Marshall Fire, a displaced renter from Louisville shares his struggles after he lost most of his belongings.

In Colorado, charging excessive prices for certain essential goods or services during a disaster period is prohibited by law. The state Attorney General clarified that such actions are deceptive trade practices under the Colorado Consumer Protection Act. The law states that the disaster period will last for 180 days from the event.

KGNU’s Rossana Longo-Better interviewed Keith Ersek, a professional contractor and now a displaced renter, shares his frustrating experiences with some entities who are unaware of and insensitive to the struggles people are facing after the devastating Marshall Fire.
