Hundreds Line Up For FEMA Assistance In Butte County

Hundreds of people displaced by the Camp Fire have lined up outside the Chico Mall where the Federal Emergency Management Agency set up an assistance center inside what used to be a Sears department store. Also assisting residents of the area destroyed by the fire were California’s Office of Emergency Services and its Department of Motor Vehicles. Carol Manzo lost her mobile home in the town of Paradise and stood in line with her daughter in law and three grandchildren. She’s says she hopes to FEMA workers about lodging for her family. They stayed in a hotel through Wednesday and can stay with a family friend in the city of Chico through Thanksgiving, but then have nowhere to go.
