Alaskan Bush People’ family’s home destroyed by fire, the reality star says
According to the Washington State Department of Natural Resources, the fire Bear referred to is called the Palmer Fire. It is located in Okanogan County. The out of control blaze has led to evacuations of the area and has burned over 6,000 acres of land. Okanogan County shares a border with Canada to its north.
Thus far authorities have not released information detailing any possible injuries or the number of homes that have been destroyed by the fire.
Alaskan Bush People premiered in 2014 and the new season is scheduled to premiere August 23
Bear and the rest of his family began their family reality show when they still resided in Alaska, hence the name of the series. However, in 2017 the family relocated to Washington State.
They currently reside on a 435-acre ranch, called North Star Ranch, located in the North Cascade Mountains. The family moved after their matriarch Ami Brown was diagnosed with lung cancer.
When it debuted, Alaskan Bush People followed the Brown family as they fought to survive in the wilderness. Fans fell in love with the rugged fam as they devoted their lives to living off the land and away from modern society. The series premiered on the Discovery Channel in 2014 and was filmed near Hoonah, Alaska, and Chichagof Island.
So long Brown Town! The Brown family is finally building their dream “mansion” from scratch, but the foundation must be completed before winter sets in.

It is now shot in Okanogan County, Washington. On August 3, 2020, it was announced that the twelfth season will premiere on August 23, 2020.
The family has not been without controversy. Patriarch Billy Brown has a criminal history of horse theft dating back to 1980 and mom Ami has a criminal history of welfare fraud. After an investigation by the Alaska Department of Revenue, a grand jury in 2014 indicted the Browns on 60 counts of first-degree unsworn falsification regarding their residency status.
