SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. – Evacuation orders are still in place for hundreds of people affected by the Zogg Fire. Many evacuees are still dealing with many unknowns.

The Rogerson family lost their home to the Zogg Fire, and they’re doing their best to keep their spirits up and take things one day at a time.

“I lived up there since I was 11-year-old,” said Marlene Rogerson. “Our home was just down from my mom's and we've been there for 45 years. All my kids were raised in that home.”

The fire forced the Rogerson family to flee their long-time family home. Their son, Jason Rogerson, noticed the smoke from the distance. That's when he told his parents, it's time to pack up.

“I knew it was really, really bad,” said Jason Rogerson. “I went back down to my parent's house and told them we had to get all packed up.”

Many memories and mementos were left behind in the rush.

“There are things that run by me and I think ‘oh darn that went’ and ‘oh okay, that went too,” said Marlene.

The loss of their family home is still sinking in.

“I don’t know if it's really set in for us that we don't have a house there anymore,” said Marlene.

But through the tragedy, they've seen the kindness of their community. The family says they are grateful for all the help and support they’ve received.

“So many people have either called, written, or done something on GoFundMe,” said Marlene. “Names I don’t even know, have done something for us.”

“Someone took the time to know that five bucks could be lunch or it can even add up to clothes,” said Hillary Rogerson, their daughter-in-law.

The family tells Action News Now, that once this is all over they hope to rebuild and move back onto their property.
