OROVILLE, Calif. - A woman in Oroville is housing seven Camp Fire evacuees and plans to bring in five more.
She currently has six trailers on her property.
Action News Now reporter Christina Vitale spoke with the property owner who said the county warned her about violating an ordinance.
The ordinance allows only two trailers on a property, but Jennifer Jones is not letting that interrupt her efforts in helping people displaced by the Camp Fire.
"I would hope that if I woke up and my entire life was gone you know they would take care of me," Jones said.
Jones woke up Tuesday afternoon to see sheriff deputies and county code enforcement on her property.
"It was straight up, 'you need to choose two trailers and all the rest have to go and the evacuees have to go,'" she said.
Even though Jones lives on more than five acres of property, Code Enforcement Manager Chris Jellison said she's still violating the camping ordinance. Jones expressed a lot of frustration after law enforcement told her about these restrictions.
"How can you go and steal peace from people who just found stability after their entire lives were taken away in seconds?" she said.
Despite the warnings, Jones plans to keep sheltering these evacuees on her property.
"There are some things we can do as long as their units are self-contained," Jones said. "I should be able to go and get an administrative letter and not have to be tied down to that two trailer rule."
Code enforcement said they will be giving plenty of warnings to Jones and visits before further action is taken.
