Just another reason I respect firefighters.
Just another reason I respect firefighters.

I got this from Kelly Stiving from the Klamathon Fire in Northern California.
She was there for a wedding.

Here’s what she wrote:

As guests were arriving and pictures we’re being taken, we got the word that we had an emergency evacuation.

We quickly finished the ceremony and got everyone out safe and sound.

As we were caravaning out, we passed a bunch of firefighters and CHP officers who were flying in to fight the fire and get everyone one out safely.

I was absolutely amazed - as we were frantically getting out of there, there were men and women going the opposite way and directly into the fire in order to protect their community.

I’m not sure how, but the strike team got to the cabin/wedding site just in time to camp out and save everything!

While they were risking their life and fighting the fire, the staff at Holiday Inn and Express in Yreka was completely accommodating to our party of 150 guests!

Them and all of the vendors were absolutely awesome and did everything they could to make the bride and grooms day special, despite the disaster going on.

I speak for everyone who was evacuated in such a rush.
It was one of the most terrifying moments of our lives, but a true testament to love.

So glad everyone is safe and we got the happy couples married!
