These are the national businesses that suffered the most from the Camp Fire

Over the past week, the Camp Fire in Northern California killed dozens of residents, destroyed thousands of homes, and burned tens of thousands of acres.

In Paradise, California (95969), the largest town affected by the blaze, 200 businesses are tracked and listed as open. Of these, 76 are places with Optimum WiFi hotspots ($NYSE:ATUS), which were being used in public areas and around other businesses.

Entity Name Locations Entity Name Locations
Optimum WiFi Hotspots 74 Tensor Tire 2
VUSE Vapor 15 Subway 2
blu eCigs 13 Logic Vapes 2
Jiffy Lube 7 Mercury Marine 2
College Student Apartments 5 FastenMaster 2
RealD 4 JUUL Labs 2
Avery 3 Serta 2
NAPA Auto Center 3 PAX Vapor 2
Bank Of Montreal - BMO 3 Freshpet 2
CEP Compression 3 Yum! Brands (KFC, Taco Bell) 2

Stores that sell e-cigarette products were most affected by the blaze, as there were 19 retailers that sold blu ($BLUCIGS), VUSE ($LON:BATS), Logic ($LOGICVAPES), JUUL ($JUUL), PAX Vapor ($PAXVAPOR) or a any combination of the five products.

These distributors ranged from pharmacies, such as Rite Aid ($NYSE:RAD), to local smoke shops and convenience stores.

Auto-related businesses, such as Shell gas stations ($LON:RDSA), Jiffy Lubes, and NAPA Auto Centers ($NYSE:GPC), also had several locations right in the middle of the fire.

Local news outlets are reporting that the fire will not be fully contained until November 30. While the true damage to these businesses is yet to be determined, the main issue, of course, are the victims — the residents of Paradise and surrounding areas — and their families. 

Join the businesses who have begun to edge out competitors by scouring the web for “alternative” data.
