PHOENIX, Ore. — It's been more than six months since the Almeda, South Obenchain, and Slater fires swept through Jackson, Josephine, and Siskiyou counties — scorching thousands of acres and leaving thousands of people without their homes or businesses.

Right now, state management crews are working on the process of clearing out the ash and debris and get these areas one step closer to completing the rebuilding process.

One of areas that were destroyed by the Almeda Fire was the Mountain View Estates. Right now, the state management crews are close to being done with their part of the process.

“So really this is a big success story. This is a locally owned park here in Oregon, and we're incredibly excited to work with the property owner, hand them the, the letter that they're ready to rebuild and, and let them take it from there,” said Kevin Alvarado, PIO for the Debris Management Task Force for the South Region.

Alvarado says the Mountain View Estates was one of the two largest mobile home parks that the state management crews are doing work on. The task force is combined of groups from the Oregon Departments of Transportation, Environmental Quality and Emergency Management.

“Our work is done when the property is cleaned, at that point we hand over the letter to the property owner and it’s up to them in terms of deciding what they want to do in terms of reconstruction and the types of facilities they are going to bring in,“ Alvarado added.

Alvarado still says the timetable for completion on these sites for the entire state are still anywhere from 6 to 18 months. He adds they currently have about 1,150 home sites that have been cleared in the Almeda corridor in the Rogue Valley.

“Although we understand that when it comes to getting folks back into their homes there is no such thing as fast enough, we are excited to the pace that the crews have been able to maintain," Alvarado said.
