OROVILLE, Calif. - A family who lost everything in the Camp Fire, is going through yet another tragedy almost a year later. 

Dezera Jordan is a single mom to 7-year-old Saden Warden. The home they rented was burned with all their belongings in the Camp Fire. 

Now, almost one year later their FEMA trailer was burned, with their dog inside. 

"I just want her back, she was a great dog," said Warden. 

Warden said her neighbors saw the flames coming from the back of her trailer.

"My neighbors basically said that, they just noted smoke and flames coming from the back of my trailer, before that nobody noticed anything strange," said Jordan. 

Jordan said she was already having anxiety for the year anniversary of the Camp Fire, but now she said she is just devastated and exhausted. 

She said firefighters do not know the cause of the fire but added FEMA was helpful in getting her and her son into a new trailer immediately. 

"It was encouraging and it was a relief that I wouldn't have to think about where I was going to sleep that night," said Jordan.

Saden said it has been a lot of work for his mom.

"It's really hard because we have a lot of things to do, we have to change address, we had to change a lot of stuff, we even might not get a pet again," said Warden. 

Jordan said even though she and her son are okay, they are both hurt about the loss of their family dog. 

"I just can't really handle it, because that was my only dog I had, it is just really hard," said Warden. 

Through the tragedy, Warden said she is still thankful to have a roof over her head.

"I still have a roof over my head and again like I said we still have our lives, but I just think the support of family and the local community really helps me push through and fills me with hope," said Jordan.

Jordan said she will be handling the rest with FEMA.

FEMA representative Michael Peacock said FEMA's priority was making sure the family got new housing immediately. 

"Connect them with wrap-around services, through our Voluntary Agency Liason which connects them with services like the Red Cross to see what other needs they have," said Peacock. 

There will also be an investigation to determine the cause of the fire. 

Peacock said they do have all their trailers inspected before anyone ever moves into them. 

Jordan said at the end of the day she is just thankful everyone is okay.
