From the publisher's desk: A week of angels after fire

In the past week I have witnessed first hand the giving spirit of the people who live around me. Friends, acquaintances and strangers on both sides of the border responded with an outpouring of incredible generosity to a woman and her child after a Crescent City house fire.

It was exactly one week ago today when I received a call that a friend’s house was on fire. I drove there to find the street blocked by flares. I saw fire trucks and long yellow hoses. I found my friend and hugged her as rain fell and her world collapsed on Inyo Street.

We were wet and cold and I was certain she was in shock. I told her over and over how lucky she was because she had been at work and her daughter at school when the fire started. In my mind I compared this event to a recent fire where a mother and her child had not been so fortunate.
