Post-Fire Recovery Information

Incident Report

The Wheeling Fire Department will complete a brief incident report regarding the circumstances involved in your fire. This incident report will be used by your insurance company to serve as independent proof of your loss and is vital in processing your insurance claim. You will need a copy of the incident report in order to file your insurance claim and/or for declaring a loss on your Federal Income Tax later on.


Incident reports are available 4 business days after your fire and can be picked up during regular business hours (Monday - Friday; 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.) at the Fire Department.
