On the evening of September 27, 2021 the Zogg Fire exploded overnight in the towns of Igo and Ono in Shasta County. 204 buildings were lost and these two small, rural towns were left navigating recovery in the midst of a pandemic. BGR joined other local agencies in offering our services and assistance at the Local Assistance Center (LAC) letting families know there were people to help them recover valuables from the rubble. BGR continues to walk alongside families sifting their properties finding memories, jewelry, heirlooms, and keepsakes. We will launch our forestry services assistance to these families who need financial help removing burnt trees, damaged vegetation, and hazards from around their building sites over the next few months.
