More San Pasqual families to get new homes

Within several months, families on the San Pasqual Reservation in California will be able to move into new homes being constructed to replaces the ones they lost in last year's deadly fire.

Three dozen families are currently living in Federal Emergency Management Agency trailers. Six families will get new homes through the tribe's housing program. Elsewhere, 21 families will receive homes thanks to $2 million in donations from two tribes.

The San Pasqual Reservation was the hardest hit by last October's fire. Nearly every acre was burned and 70 homes were destroyed.
