SHASTA, COUNTY, Calif. - Crews are wrapping up phase one of Zogg Fire cleanup, as dozens of survivors wait to rebuild.

It's been over a month since the Zogg Fire ripped through the Igo-Ono community and some are still waiting to go home.

“Everything is complicated and takes time and you get a little tired,” said Susan Reid who evacuated the fire with her husband.

Doug and Susan Reid haven’t been able to live back home because the fire damaged parts of their property.

“We've been able to get back into the house,” said Doug. “It's just not habitable yet, power was destroyed, our water system was destroyed. But the house and the garage survived.”

The couple is waiting for the power to return so they can turn their water on and fix the front of their house.

“I'd say there are many weeks behind us, but there are many months ahead,” said Doug. “It's a process and it's a long one.”

The couple tells Action News Now they hope to move back into their home sometime before Thanksgiving.
