BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - Several non-profits are behind more than 40 manufactured homes being replaced in areas burned by the Camp Fire, free of charge.

"I know that I'll be alright, but yeah it gets real stressful, not knowing where am I going to be, how am I going to pay rent," said Cathy Muncy, a Camp Fire survivor.

Cathy Muncy has been living in a Chico FEMA trailer home for months since losing her mobile home in the Camp Fire. She says she'd like to have a place of her own, but she faces several obstacles.

"I don't think they would even consider me, you know, as far as my credit and stuff? You know, because I don't have it. They're just going to laugh at me," Muncy said.

Several non-profits are looking to potentially help people like Muncy, such as Samaritan's Purse International Relief and the North Valley Community Foundation. The organizations say they're ready to replace more than 40 manufactured homes burned in the Camp Fire, free of charge.

"I would have a home, I would have something that I could afford," Muncy said.

Applicants will be considered from areas including Concow, Magalia, and Yankee Hill. For a full list of the application requirements, click here.

There will be two listening sessions from 6 to 7 p.m., one on Tuesday, Nov. 12, at the Paradise Alliance Church at 6491 Clark Road in Paradise. The second will be Wednesday, Nov. 13, at the Chico Salvation Army on East 16th Street.

The last two days saw quite a bit of rain in Northern California. Today we could see more but the showers look to be more isolated today than in previous days. Highs today are expected to reach the upper 50s to lower 60s.
