There seems to be no end in sight to the horrific wildfires burning at record speed in the state of California. With over 250 USDA Forest Service firefighters assisting on crews fighting the #CampFire at this time they all have to be fed and rested between their intense 24 hour shifts.
Residents have lost homes, pets, business and possessions in the carnage and over 44 people have lost their lives in the fires. with so many fleeing the fires its important to show our gratitude to so many of the people running directly towards the flames.
Heroic firefighters and police officers continue to brave the fury and run directly to the flames to save as many lives and homes as they can. They leave their own homes and their own families knowing that their very lives are put at risk.
