Burned Vehicle Removal

Can a Landlord who lost his property in the Camp Fire in Paradise Ca. keep his tenants deposit for damage to the property and charge the tenant for the removal  of the remains of two vehicles ? I'm sure the property owner is filing a FEMA claim. He texted the notice of deposit non return the day after the fire.  Please advise if this is legal or not or send us to the right people who can answer this question.  Thank you.

You wouldn't be responsible for the damage to the property caused by a wild fire.  He could possibly charge for the cost of the vehicle removal.   You should ask for the deposit back and any prorated rent you may have paid for the month after the property became unlivable.
