TALENT, 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.
Doye Hudson is married to the owner of the Mountain View Estates. His father-in law purchased the park back in the mid 80’s.
He and his crew are working on getting people back into their homes as quick as possible.
“If you order a home, they're up to a year away. We did find one manufacturer is six to eight weeks. So, we're going to try to get homes here. As soon as they can turn the property back over to us, then we can start getting homes. We have homes waiting to come in,” Hudson said.
He and his family do all the maintenance work on the property. Hudson says when the Almeda Fire hit they lost 143 homes.
“If you were a resident here, you are more than welcome to come put your house back together,” Hudson adds.
