The South Tahoe Association of Realtors is working to match those who have lost their homes to the Angora fire with homeowners willing to rent their property.

STAR is creating a database of properties that may be available to assist those who have been displaced by the Angora Fire. This will become urgent as people that have lost their homes work with insurance companies to arrange interim housing.

STAR staff will facilitate by providing members of the community with property owner contact information. This will allow people to negotiate directly with those owners to determine lease and rental terms.

Those who can offer housing are asked to contact Sharon Kerrigan, executive vice president of STAR, at (530) 541-7007.
