A year ago this Saturday, the Sayre fire tore through Oakridge, a quaint mobile home park in the Sylmar foothills. It destroyed almost 500 homes. After a six month mandatory evacuation, residents began to move back into the park in May. But the rebuilding process has been slow. Charred metal and rubble lies amidst the 90-odd newly installed homes. To commemorate the anniversary, the team behind the documentary "The Ashes of Oakridge" returned to the park this week and took in the scene.
