CHICO, Calif. - A location to place trailers for Camp Fire evacuees has become a divisive issue for many residents in Chico.

FEMA is considering placing trailers on an Eaton Road property and that has people in that area outraged because of the big impact it would have on the area. 

However, others are not opposed to the trailers being in the area. 

"I don't see anything wrong with it," said James Bergen, a Chico resident in the area of Eaton Road. "I think they need to go somewhere. Where else are you going to put them? I don't have a problem with this, I think it's a good idea." 

FEMA is also looking at other properties in Butte County, and they hope to find that location and set up trailers as soon as possible.

We have beautiful weather around northern California right now, but it will get a lot more unsettled this weekend as a storm moves overhead. We can expect gusty wind, a big cooldown, and areas of light to moderate rain.
