The town was immediately evacuated to a temporary shelter location with the Red Cross on site. An estimated 40 homes were destroyed by the fire and one body was recovered by fire officials.

When a brush fire occurs, not only are homes and properties at risk for damage but fatalities may also occur. From small house fires to large wildfires, fires can cause extreme damage to lives and properties. Losing everything you own within hours is devastating and it may take a while to rebuild your home and your life.
