San Pasqual families grateful for new homes

Eight families on the San Pasqual Reservation in California moved into their new homes on Tuesday, a year after being hit by a devastating fire.

The eight homes were built through AMERIND, a Native American housing consortium. The new owners accepted the keys at an emotional ceremony.

Nearly every home on the reservation was destroyed by the Paradise Fire. Some homes were rebuilt with insurance money, and others by donations and volunteers.
