BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - Camp Fire survivors who are living in FEMA Housing, have to be out in six months, but that could change.

Survivors can live in FEMA Housing until 18 months after the disaster declaration date, which was November 12th of last year.

As the deadline gets closer, the state can ask for more time so people can be in their trailers longer.

Michael Peacock from FEMA said people need to make sure to stay in touch with their case managers.

"As that time gets closer just to pay attention to their caseworkers because each survivor is working with a case manager," said Peacock. 

The case managers will be working with people during their transition from FEMA housing to their permanent housing solutions, Peacock said.

The case managers will also know if the deadline changes.
