    Northern California wildfires have devastated over 1.25 million acres since August 15, 2020. Over 650 wildfires, many sparked by overnight lightning, have burned land, destroyed over 1,400 buildings, and left seven people dead, as reported by CalFire.

    Our top priority at Poplar Homes is the safety and well-being of our homeowners, residents, and employees. Given that we manage nearly ten percent of all available single-unit rentals in the San Francisco Bay Area and Southern California, we feel it’s necessary at this time to open up temporary disaster relief housing for those in need. We wish the utmost safety to our California residents impacted by the fires.

    For daily updates on the Northern California wildfires, we recommend visiting the official CAL FIRE website and Twitter page.
