Forty people have lost their lives and hundreds more remain unaccounted for in California’s deadliest wildfire in state history. Sixteen fires are still blazing in various parts of the state. The fires have consumed thousands of homes and businesses and burned more than 221,000 acres. As of Monday, 75,000 people remain under evacuation orders.

Earlier this month a wildfire forced one of our Rapid Response team members and his church community to evacuate in the middle of the night. Thankfully their houses were spared, but outbuildings and vehicles were lost in the fire.

CAM’s California Rapid Response team is researching how best to respond. Many areas are still closed to research and clean-up crews. We have started cleanup in the community of Feather Falls where 32 homes were destroyed. This community reached out to us after becoming aware of the help we had provided fire victims 30 minutes away near the Wall Fire.

Pray for the California response team as they research and minister to hurting people. Pray also for the safety of those who battle the fires and those who face loss of homes and loved ones.
