California Wildfires #ValleyFire / #ButteFire Today in the News

California Wildfires #ValleyFire / #ButteFire Today in the News 9/14/2015:

Today's Recap:
Monday September 14th California Wildfires continue to burn and Good Day had Special Coverage all morning long. 

As the Monday Crews took over for the weekend that didn't stop Good Day from their continuous coverage of 2 of the 12 fires burning in the state. The Valley Fire now at 61,000 acres 5% contained continues to burn anything in its path. Cal Fire PIO Daniel Berlant was back in studio talking with Ken and Cody who would normally have the day off but came in to help with the coverage. Daniel said out of the 12 fires 11,000 firefighters are battling the blazes. Daniel also pointed out DO NOT Touch Power lines they may or may not be live wires laying in the ground. 

Sadly it was confirmed that one has lost his/her life in the fire and Melissa talked with a man at the Napa County Fairgrounds acting as an evacuation center that said he may know the person who passed away. In fact Melissa talked with other locals at the Fairgrounds that have been evacuated and each story just broke your heart hearing how fast the fire came and how little time they had to get out. 

Yesterday Kristin showed some of the destruction in Middletown and today Cambi and Dave took Rover to show even more. It is hard to see. It was really hard to see the homes and cars that just got destroyed by the fire. At one point of Cambi's reports it seemed like she was choking back tears. They came up on one Apartment Complex that was just completely gone. All that was left was burnt and 1 door standing as well as one play structure completely unharmed. 

Cody and Ken also talked with Leo Grover from Pinnacle Emergency who gave some tips on returning to your home after the fires and how not to fall into traps. Leo also stated that renters insurance for not only homes but apartments are very important. They only cost about an additional $7-$12 a month on your regular insurance. 

Lori was also back today and she headed to the Butte Fire in Amador County. Daniel stated that fire is not 30% contained however grew in size to 71,063 and later Daniel phoned in to talk with Lori and Julissa and said the winds picked up on the fire of the Butte Fire. 

Photographer Terry Hagz is from Jackson and showed signs posted along the way thanking the Firefighters. In Addition Terry shared places for those who need respiratory masks in the area. Terry also pointed out several Fire Engines passed him along the road as they headed to the fire.

Several Evacuations centers are available for the 2 fires. Cody said Jackson Rancheria located at 12222 New York Ranch Road, Jackson, CA has spot available for those of the Butte Fire.

Melissa was at the Napa Valley Fairgrounds where they are also taking people in. In addition to a local viewer letting me know that both churches in Burson. The Vet Hall in Valley Springs and also the church at Hwy 26 and Baldwin, Valley Springs. Plus Brad Miracle from R. Ranch at the Lake phoned once again to say he too has space available and room for horses. For more info on R. Ranch call Brad at 7073374927 or go to... 

One thing Melissa said is the Fairgrounds are also seeking donations of Liquids, clothing, nonperishable food and utensils. 

In times of tragedy people always want to help. Yesterday CBS 13's Steve Large caught volunteers doing just that.

Cody/Ken: Disaster Management
Today on Good Day Sacramento Leo Grover from Pinnacle Emergency Management was in to give tips on returning home after wildfire. Leo also pointed out Renters should get Renters insurance even if living in Apartments as well as homes. 
Most important things to qualify a contractor:
1. Licensed
2. Bonded
3. Insured
4. Good references
5. Key point of difference with Pinnacle – they understand how to also handle contents that can be salvaged/restored, not just how to fix the building.
