BUTTE COUNTY, CA - Two homes and five outbuildings were destroyed in a 298-acre vegetation fire in the Palermo area of Butte County Monday.
According to Cal Fire, flames were first reported at 1:49 p.m. in the area of Palermo Quiles said they saw smoke and them flames overran their family homestead.
"We had two houses. A barn here, two other barns there. Equipment. Big rigs burned to the ground," said Jovanny Quiles.
Jonathan Quiles said the family's olive orchard was almost a complete loss.
Of the family's many pets, only one cat and a four chickens could be found.
Family patriarch Euripides Quiles surveyed the damage from an electric cart he rides. "Everything, everything," he said.
Only one of many family vehicles survived the flames that swept over the compound.
As you can read the report above my Grandpa Euripides Quiles has lost his home and ranch in a large wild fire. So I'm asking that all family members please find it in their hearts to donate and share this site with friends so to help Grandpa get back on his feet. If you would like to also send items like clothes, shoes, and anything you feel would bring comfort to his situation please send it to 393 Watt Drive, Fairfield, CA 94534.
At this time Uncle Jerry is working on getting all the items Grandpa will need for day to day activities but until then we will take all the donated items and deliver them as needed.
If there is anything I'm missing or you would like to add please contact me at [phone redacted].
Rick Quiles Jr.
