Terrible ordeal for those folks.
Waiting to learn what started this. In past, investigators were able to pinpoint how fire started, one was campers did not ensure their fire pit fully extinguished. And bad results.

They are looking at downed power lines and an exploding transformer. We used to live about 30 miles from there and have friends in that area. Heard from one friend last nite and they are ok. His daughter's job is allowing them to stay at work and have added additional smoke cleaners in their work place as well as bringing in food to feed them all. Says her kids are loving it as it's like a camping trip to them.

This country has really shown how we can come together to help those in need the last couple of months. Dave

I just saw a youtube video where a RV dealership was housing families in the new rigs on the lot.

Not sure how the sales of those vehicles are going to do in sales after they are lived in for a few weeks but how generous of those dealerships to house displaced residents!!!

Unfortunately it was on a news report on live TV. I didn't recognize the name and it didn't stick with me. But I would have liked to pump the dealership up a bit.
