BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - A public meeting will be held on Tuesday night to gather public opinion about the possibility of FEMA trailers being placed on Hegan Lane in Butte County.

Neighbors in the area told Action News Now that they are happy to help those impacted by the Camp Fire, however, they are concerned that placing the trailers in that location could cause a traffic and public safety issue. 

"Its a safety issue for me and for most of us," said Gary Estep, a neighbor that lives off of Hegan Lane. "We would be happy to see the people as long as it can be handled in a safe way." 

Neighbors say they have been evacuated before and they have expressed concern specifically with the area around the train tracks. If they are trying to go west, there is concerned about being blocked in by a train if it is on the tracks. 

They say that Hegan Lane is their only way in and out. 

The meeting will be held at the Chico City Council chambers at 6 p.m. on Tuesday. It is a listening session so that Cal OES and FEMA can hear public concerns and comment.
