Banner Fire in California


Recommended Posts

This is the type of thankfully small, yet very annoying fire we get in California. I wanted to share this picture because you can see how close the fire got to homes on Thursday. This family lost some sheds out back; however, their house was spared. We (the Red Cross) have had to open two temporary evacuation points (TEPs) so far as the fire moves around. Each day, the people were allowed to return home so the TEPs did not need to turn into a shelter. A location is not considered a shelter until there is a need to have people sleep there overnight. We had some rain yesterday which allowed the firemen to reach 65% containment with no increase in acres burned for 24 hours. :)
