| Charles Barkley: 'We need to follow up in disaster areas'
Nevada Appeal - Carson City, NV, USA
- There was concern and sympathy in Charles Barkley's
voice Friday afternoon as he toured a South Lake Tahoe neighborhood decimated by the recent Angora fire.
"This is unbelievable," Barkley said. "I really want to let people know that this is really unfortunate. It's going to take years for everybody to rebuild their houses here."
The fire destroyed 254 homes, displaced 3,500 residents and caused more than $160 million in damages last month.
The 11-time NBA All-Star visited several home owners on Mule Deer Drive and Mount Olympia Circle following the first round of the American Century Championship at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course.
