Meeting Highlights Rebuilding After Carr Fire

Posted: Aug 10, 2018 6:49 PM

REDDING, Calif - Nearly a thousand homes have been destroyed since the Carr Fire ripped through shasta county.

One by one evacuations were slowly lifted and residents could now see what was left of their homes.

For the unfortunate families who lost their homes this means deciding where and how to begin rebuilding.

"Those home owners that have lost their homes and are looking at how to get to the next step how to get back to build a new home this is information on how to get from here to there," said Carr Fire Recovery Director Brian Crane 

So Action News Now headed to city hall on Friday to learn more about what would be discussed at the meeting.

Crane said the debris removal process will come in two phases.

The first is household hazardous waste removal.

"They're starting that right now and you'll see crews in the community next week. From house to house and looking for hazardous waste and removing that. They wont ask permission it's a public health emergency," said Crane. 

The second is sit assessments and moving the foundation.

"Removing the actual burn debris of the home itself removing the foundation and getting to a point where you can rebuild," said Crane. 

He adds the city is working on expediting building permits for residents to begin rebuilding, and are hoping to have the removal stage completed by December.


He says he understands this is a difficult time for residents and the city is just trying to make the rebuilding process as easy as possible.
