Yesterday hot temperatures and wind caused fires to start in Southern Oregon. I left my home to bring the kids to Ashland and found out my parent's neighborhood was being evacuated due to a swiftly moving fire. Due to traffic and roads closing quickly I wasn't able to get back home to grab any belongings. Last night our home went up in flames, our whole neighborhood, and our sweet little town of Talent, Oregon.
The twins and I lost everything, but we are safe. I am in shock and don't even know where to begin. I was renting. I don't have renters insurance. Still waiting to find out if FEMA or any other government agencies can help. I have no idea how much or what I need at this point. Anything and everything is appreciated. We are safe and have a place to stay.
