SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. - Hundreds of people are still searching for shelter as the Zogg Fire continues to burns.

Many of the evacuees that came to the temporary evacuation point at the Holiday Market in Redding have been feeling all kinds of emotions, from nervousness to stress.

For Kathryn Rogers, a long-time resident of Ono, all she had were minutes. In that short time, she managed to grab some of her stuff and her dog and immediately left.

“When the fire department came I had minutes to get out,” said Rogers. “I just grabbed my dog and I didn't have time to think.”

But those minutes were not enough.

“I kept thinking about all the stuff I left behind, like my cats,” said Rogers.

Rogers says, she's lived in the Ono area for many years. Rogers tells Action News Now she doesn’t see herself moving back to the area once this is all this is over.

“I don’t even want to rebuild,” said Rogers. “I’m tired of being evacuated all the time, I don’t feel safe there.”

“When they tell you to get out because you're risking your life, everyone else's life, and the fire department's life.”

Rogers says she’s just trying to take it one day at a time.
