OROVILLE, Calf. - There is a new option for fire survivors in need of a place to call home, and it stems from a place of kindness.

The owners of River Run Recreation and Resort in Oroville are opening up space for fire survivors to park their trailers. They are hoping to fit 40 RVs on the property and add more living space as the need arises.

Work is still being done to complete the project but some fire survivors have already moved into the property.

"It's been great, it's nice and quiet, there's the river we can go down," said Bear Fire survivor, Ernest Creamar. "It's peaceful."

His wife, Katie says, "Here we have been able to breathe."

"I'm happy I can have a place to stay because I don't have it at home anymore," shared their friend Ardene Miller, who is living with them and is also a Bear Fire survivor.

Khris-tina Kelley, who is friends with the property owners and is helping with the project says they are proud to have them in their community. 

Khris-tina Kelley says she decided to help with the project because she has friends who have been impacted by the fires. The property owners have also been impacted by wildfires in the past and wanted to give back. 

"They are amazing family members and they wanted to open up their arms and give back," said Amanda Baxter & Hannah Young, whose family members own the property. "It's great they have the opportunity and property to do this."

"Resources for trailers are hard to get for right now so if someone has an RV and they're looking for a spot please contact us," said Kelley.

The owners are also working on obtaining a grant to build a playground for kids who will be living on the property. 

For information on the RV spaces and pricing, people can call (530) 403-3948. Prices vary for each individual person and their situation.
