FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- It's been more than a month now since the devastating Creek Fire broke out in parts of Fresno and Madera Counties.
Firefighters are still battling the flames, but the focus is beginning to shift towards the massive cleanup efforts.
To clear up any confusion for homeowners eager to rebuild, Assemblyman Jim Patterson (R-Fresno) discussed some of the cleanup options.
"There are two options available. There's a government cleanup with no cost to the homeowners. The other option is you can hire your own contractor to do the cleanup at your own expense," Patterson said.
