Aptly Named, “Journey’s End,” Manufactured Home Community Tragedies, Wildfires, Video

October 13th, 2017

The chared remains of frames are all that remains on many of the factory-built homes in the Journey’s End community in Santa Rosa. The video will reflect that some homes directly across the street, which appear to be HUD Code manufactured homes, look to be intact.

As a follow up to the wildfire fatality story, linked here, an industry source in California, plus ABC7 News have been informed the Daily Business News about the tragic loss of life and property in Santa Rosa, CA.

James Cook, the manager of Journey’s End, says he tried to get everyone out in time but the fire moved so fast. “We were doing a door to door, knocking on the doors, getting people out and the wife and I were both doing it. There was other members of the park doing it,” he said, per ABC 7.

Hundreds are missing, reportedly dozens have died, and cell service is down in various parts of the area.

The posted videos tell the tale.

Surreal,” was the word used by an industry executive about the images in the video below, who sent the information with a request to stay off the record.

While local media misused some terminology, they did note that the fires wee impacting residential and commercial neighborhoods, not only the manufactured home community. ## (News.)
