Oroville, CA - The Butte County Board of Supervisors approved fee waivers to assist Wall Fire victims as they clean up burned properties and rebuild homes and other structures. The purpose of the fee waivers is to encourage rebuilding and elimination of hazardous and blighted areas. The community at large will benefit from such assistance by restoring property values, and removing debris, hazardous materials, and blight caused by the fire. The fee waivers and streamlined services will be available for any fires declared local emergencies during the 2017 CAL FIRE-defined fire season.

Residents should visit the Fire Assistance Center to meet one-on-one with County staff and talk through the steps to clean up their properties and begin rebuilding. Staff can help residents understand the available fee waivers and begin recovering from the Wall Fire. The Fire Assistance Center is open Monday through Friday from 12:00 pm to 3:00 pm and is located at the Department of Development Services building, 7 County Center Drive in Oroville. Walk-in visits are welcome, and residents can call 530.538.7473. Information is also available online at www.buttecounty.net/fireassistancecenter.
