GRIDLEY, Calif. - FEMA may be bringing 400 trailers to an area in Gridley to house evacuees of the Camp Fire for up to a year and a half.

Action News Now reporter Luna Nas spoke with neighbors in the area to gather their reactions to the proposed location for the trailers.

Some residents have concerns about how much traffic this may bring to the area. 

"I'm a little concerned about the traffic situation," said Jim Montgomery, a resident in the area. "I'm kind of hoping that they'll have more than one entrance."

Some residents in the area have concerns about safety and also the FEMA trailer's proximity to the schools. 

"I think as with it already being such a small community and the schools being so close to where they're going to be putting in the FEMA trailers that could be a problem," said Jodie Boots, a resident in the area. "I think as long as we can get more law enforcement." 

Although some are concerned about the crime this move will bring in and certainly some of the traffic here they are happy that 400 families can now have a home. 

"We want them to have homes and a place to stay," Boots said. "If we could build a bigger community and actually have the room for people to come in that'd be great."
