Off-Ramp's Queena Kim and KPCC Reporter Frank Stoltze take a look back at "The Ashes of Oakridge," a radio documentary that was made possible by your support of KPCC.

In November, the Sayre fire devastated the Oakridge Mobile Home Park in Sylmar. Residents called it the "Beverly Hills of Mobile Home Parks."

Please contact us if you have comments about the documentary. And feel free to pass along the doc to those who may have been affected, or to anyone who wants a fresh look at the impact of Southern California wildfires. Thanks!
