(AP) - Officials say they're looking to bring in mobile homes for thousands of people who have lost their houses to a Northern California wildfire.
Mark Ghilarducci of the California Governor's Office of Emergency Services says U.S. and state officials also are looking into hotels and rental properties to house people driven from the town of Paradise and neighboring communities.
The blaze displaced 52,000 people and destroyed more than 7,600 homes. It killed dozens of people, with more still missing.
Federal Emergency Management Agency Administrator Brock Long said Wednesday that temporary schools and hospitals will be brought in because rebuilding Paradise will take time.
He says the town of 27,000 won't be rebuilt the way it was and that "we will all have to work together to find a new normal."
