It's been more than six months since the Gray Fire in Medical Lake destroyed more than 240 homes. Now, homes are starting to be rebuilt and victims are hoping to move forward.

"I have to drive through that area every day to work and from work and it's just, you know, a constant reminder of what happened," Joe David Veliz said.

Veliz and his wife, Destiny, lost their home in the Gray Fire on August 18.

 "The people there are in different stages and it's exciting when you you see a lot get cleaned up, and then their foundation, you get excited for them," Destiny said.

They were one of more than two dozen families that joined a town hall with attorneys from Singleton Schreiber, a law firm that specializes in wildfire litigation. The firm got involved with the Gray Fire back in September.

"We have experts that when we suspect that there's been a utility caused wildfire, we have our experts take a look at it and and see what they can confirm," attorney John Lemon said.

Lemon and Steve Hill are the primary attorney's handling the litigation. They said the DNR report that blamed Inland Power and Light for causing the Gray Fire helped them move forward in their process.
