Fire Victim Relief and More Today in the News 9/16/2015

Today's Recap:
When tragedy strikes people come together as 1 to help. Whether it be Food Donations, Clothes, Time, Places to stay or Money people are always there to help.

Today's Good Day was one of those special days. From 6am-10am Good Day, CBS13 CBS Sacramento KBCWtv 44 in the Bay Area, Now 100.5 fm 105.1 KNCI Sports 1140 KHTK Mix 96 KSFM 1025 Sacramento Kings and more teamed up with The American Red Cross for Fire Victims Relief Fund. Proceeds donated today will be distributed by the Red Cross to those directly affected by the #ValleyFire #ButteFire and #RoughFire. Today's show was such a big deal that the CBS Radio stations took their shows out of the studio and into the Good Day studio.

Carmichael Dave and Dave Deuce Mason joined from KHTK Sports 1140 to broadcast their show while Nate Goodyear and Jason Ross answered phones taking donations from those able to donate. However they are not the only ones that come into studio Dan and Michelle from Mix 96, Todd and Erica from Now 100.5, Cody Brianna from Now also answered phones along with countless American Red Cross volunteers and Nationwide Insurance volunteers. Sac City Fire came in to answer phones as well.

We saw many large donations come in from $5,000 to $1,000 all the way down to pennies on the dollar but EVERYTHING HELPS According to Tony Lopez at the time of this writing over $202,190 (UPDATED) was donated in a 4 hour period with over 700 calls. If you would still like to donate you can by Fire Victims Relief Fund Send check payable to The American Red Cross CBS13/CW31 Telethon 1565 Exposition Boulevard Sacramento, CA 95815 or call (916) 993-7080.

Some of the most heart wrenching stories came from CBS13's own Tony Lopez, Christina, Anderson, Adrienne Moore who have been on the fires. Christina had a more personal story because she helped evacuate her family members around the #ButteFire. Tony and Adrienne shared what they saw as well as stories residents shared with them.

Daniel Berlant was back providing updates to the fires and said at 7am hour the #ValleyFire in Lake, Napa & Sonoma counties is now 70,000 acres & 30% contained and The #ButteFire in Amador & Calaveras counties is now 71,780 acres and 45% contained.

Good Day also had reporters out on the fires. Kristin was at the Napa Valley Fairgrounds providing updates and Heather was back at the Butte Fire Evacuation Center at Jackson Rancheria providing updates. In fact over the course of a 4 day period Good Day had reporters and photographers on the scene. From Shawn Halvorson, Terry Hagz, Dave Grashoff, Scott Holcombe and more. They have also had several reporters reporting from the scene at the #ButteFire Base camp and throughout Middletown and Anderson Springs, and Cobb. On Sunday Heather Brent was at the #ButteFire where the air was thick of smoke as crews battled the blaze. On Monday Lori Wallace was at that same location reporting on updates and sharing the weather conditions as well as talking to firefighters from all over California here to help. At the #ValleyFire Kristin Marshall was the first Good Day Reporter to report on the scene in the town of Middleton where homes, cars, and businesses just got completely wiped out by the fire. As we moved into Monday and Good Day sent more crews to the #ValleyFire Sean reported on the fire fight as well as some of the destruction however it was Cambi Brown going through the town of Middletown where she saw 2 goats just standing in a burned out field in addition to an entire apartment complex gone, home's gone, cars gone. Melissa was at the Napa County Fairgrounds reporting on the volunteers helping with the evacuees. Melissa also talked with some of the evacuees getting their stories of having to evacuate with minutes to spare most with only the clothes on their backs, no food for their children, no food for their pets. no homes to go back to. Not only did Good Day have reporters on scene but both Sunday and Monday Cody Stark and Lori and then Kenneth Rudulph and Cody talked with Cal Fire PIO Daniel Berlant getting tips to be Wildfire Ready as well as updates on both fires buring plus the other 10 burning throughout the State with over 11,000 firefighters on hand battling each blaze.

Good Day also had some of their normal daily topics though the telethon was the lead story of the day. Cambi was at Flaming Grill Cafe who offer different types of burgers. Scott Zentner tried a Yak, Kangaroo, and Llama burger. Flaming Grill is new to Elk Grove. Lori was with Ellen Martin a local blogger learning more about healthy Squeezable drinks. Tina was Dishin With Tina at El Papagayo and Courtney was checking out Fashion Week Hair Trends at Dreamgirl Hair Imports in Elk Grove.
