Rubble of the 489 homes destroyed at the Oakridge Mobile Home Park.

Next week, we'll revisit the Off-Ramp documentary, "The Ashes of Oakridge."

In November, the Sayre fire struck the Oakridge Mobile Home Park in Sylmar; residents called it "the Beverly Hills of mobile home parks." It was the biggest destruction of homes in Southern California in recent memory.

We find out what kind of place Oakridge was, why the fire happened, whether future mobile park fires can be prevented, and what future the park and its survivors face.
