GRIDLEY, Calif. - Camp Fire survivors are continuing to transition out of FEMA trailers, 14 months after losing their homes.

Action News Now spoke with one couple who lives in the trailers off West Liberty road. They lost their home in Butte Valley in the Camp Fire. 

They said help from FEMA has been inconsistent. Now, they're hoping to move out of the state when they take their next step.

"Some of them are helpful and some of them aren't," Clay Ackerman and Leann Buttelo, who live at the Gridley FEMA trailers, said. "But they're doing their part they have a big job. They go from place to place, disaster to disaster."

Without an extension, everyone in a FEMA trailer would be out by May 12th. Butte County Deputy Chief Administrator, Casey Hatcher said the county has requested a year extension from FEMA. 

However, the couple said they are ready to leave the state.

"We got a place in Wyoming that we're getting ready," Buttelo said. "We're done with California, it's just fire after fire."

The request for an extension is still pending federal approval.
