It's been several weeks since we last did a story on the Almeda Fire, and it's been some time since we last had a look at the affected area for ourselves. In this episode of US AS WE ARE, we head back into the burn zone to investigate the progress being made on the cleanup and rebuilding effort. We start near where the fire began in North Ashland and proceed along the path it took through Talent and Phoenix. Once we reach the far side of Phoenix, we pay a visit to Bach Development managing partner Bear Klinge, who we've talked with in a previous episode, and have him fill us in on where he and his work crew are in their process of cleaning up, removing debris, prepping the ground, and installing manufactured homes.
