1 year after losing everything in Caldor Fire, some Grizzly Flats residents still have no home

One year after the Caldor Fire tore through El Dorado County, insurance issues and a lack of federal assistance continue to stand in the way of residents who lost everything and struggle to rebuild. Melissa White Gustafson, who lived in the community of Grizzly Flats, recalled the terrifying moments of when the wildfire leveled the place she and her family of eight called home. She said they only had 15 minutes to get out when the evacuation orders were issued. "We weren't sure what to grab," she said. "We thought we had a chance." One year after the wildfire sparked, Gustafson and her family remain without a steady roof above their heads. Tents and RVs have become makeshift homes.
