PARADISE, Calif - The Camp Fire ripped across the ridge almost two years ago and left tens of thousands homeless. 

Some left, some found shelter in the county, but some like Greta Moreno had no choice but to live in an RV. 

“So far we have lived 19 months in a motor home," said Moreno. "We’re glad to be up here but you know, we are already a year and a half out and I am getting tired of living in a motor home.”

The Paradise Town Council adopted an ordinance allowing people to live in RVs on properties without structures, but they have to have a building plan in place and submitted before December 31, 2020.

Moreno said that’s not enough time.

“I would be inclined to want to see the town delay it for another six months," said Moreno.

Moreno said the building plan she is working is currently delayed.

"There is a delay with the COVID," said Moreno. "So, the factory is still working but the had to lay off a crew, so they are working short.”

Moreno also said though the construction for her new home is delayed, she is thankful to have one and is worried for those who don’t.

"I feel bad for them," said Moreno. "Whatever the circumstance. That’s why I think the timeline needs to be extended.”

Paradise councilmember Melissa Schuster told Action News Now the reason they’re talking about this again is to see if people need more time and that staff is reaching out to help people come up with appropriate solutions.
