Fire destroyed large parts of California again Monday.

Six Red Cross volunteers from North Carolina are on the ground helping, including Helen Miller from Jacksonville, who arrived Sunday night.

“The people are very appreciative and it doesn’t matter if they are rich or poor; they have all been affected by this disaster,” Miller said.



More than 2,000 people have taken refuge at several Red Cross Shelters.

Miller will be distributing shelter food and supplies to neighbors watching their communities burn.
