Several local business are banning together to provide support for victims of the Camp Fire. Reibes Automotive along with Hansen Brothers Enterprises and Dematini RVs are providing direct assistance to some of Bart Riebe’s employees from Paradise and Chico who have lost their homes. Bart has converted the open area behind his store in Chico to set up a temporary RV campground for five families. Reibe reached out to Recreation Vehicle Dealer Tim Demartini, who met with him to work out several deals on trailer homes for the lot.
