FEMA Opens Temporary Housing In Lincoln City

Chris Lehman

FEMA says it’s opened a temporary housing site in Lincoln City. The manufactured housing will serve victims of the Echo Mountain Fire, which destroyed hundreds of homes last September. FEMA says so far 106 households have moved into similar units in fire-damaged counties around the state.

The agency said a total of 264 families are currently qualified for the housing, but the number fluctuates as survivors sometimes find temporary or permanent housing on their own.
