The Oregon communities of Blue River, Vida and Detroit in the Cascades suffered staggering home losses in the 2020 wildfires. Today, these communities are working around the clock with rebuilding efforts of homes, orchards and outbuildings. KBOO's Jeslyn Lemke has the story. 

Includes comments from Nathan Mead, a Hazelnut Farmer outside Vida, Norman Koon of Koon General Contracting and Rich Duncan of Rich Duncan Construction Inc.
