BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — Last year was a devastating year for California when it came to fire season. Wildfires devastated much of California's wilderness.
One campground, Camp Kern, says they are now trying to rebuild after damage caused by the Creek Fire that started in September of 2020.
The Creek Fire was the fourth-largest wildfire in California history and destroyed nearly all structures at Camp Kern.
The fire burned almost 400,000 acres but was successfully 100% contained on December 24, 2020.
Camp Kern serves as a Boy Scouts summer camp. Located along Huntington Lake in Fresno County.
Workers have yet to repair any of the damage at the Campsite, but as warmer weather approaches, construction plans are underway.
The camp is collaborating with FEMA to rebuild.
As construction happens, camp officials remind people not to enter the area.
