CHICO, Calif. - Erin Brockovich, the environmental activist and legal clerk who famously took on PG&E for contaminated water in Hinkley, CA, met with Camp Fire survivors at the Elks Lodge Monday night.

She and a group of North State attorneys are hosting community forums, to advise people not only their legal rights but to help them navigate the insurance process.

Linda Stratton-Foor and Kyla Awalt attended the meeting. They said their situation is unique because their homes were not destroyed by the fire, but they still need advice.

"Are we going to be forced to move back to Paradise before we have power?" Stratton-Foor said. "Before we have water? We have kids.  We don't want to expose them to environmental hazards. They have a lot of good information about what we should be asking our insurance about."

Brockovich met with people individually after the meeting. She also posed with people for pictures. 

"I was pretty surprised," Brockovich said. "I asked everyone who had lost a home to raise their hand.  And out of hundreds of people, I think every hand came up."
