The shell of a burned pickup truck is all that remains Tuesday, July 15, 2014, at one of a dozen home sites in the Moccasin Hills subdivision north of Sprague River, Ore. A Sunday wildfire swept through the rural community in southern Oregon, scorching 2,900 acres, burning 20 buildings, most of them mobile homes. Communities in Klamath County are rallying to find shelter for those left homeless and provide food and clothing. Cause of the fire is under investigation. The fire erupted one day after the community of a few hundred people celebrated its annual Pioneer Days festival.
