This week’s fires touched almost everyone in some way. Some people lost homes, some still don’t know if their homes survived. Many people didn’t have time to gather precious possessions, others used what time they had to make sure their neighbors got away too. We’d like to hear from you.

What happened in your neighborhood? At your job? Will you return and rebuild?
