Rosenthal Family Santa Rosa Fire

The Rosenthal family - two parents and four children -  barely escaped death in the Santa Rosa fire. They lost their home, everything. 

Their grandparents -  ages 93 and 88 - also nearly died. They're "frequent fires" - the 1991 Oakland fire destroyed their home.

January 2nd will be their 70th WEDDING ANNIVERSARY. 

Shortly before the fire, the Rosenthal teens threw a  party honoring Santa Rosa's unsung First Responders.

On  October 9th, while  counting funds they'd raised for hurricane victims, the teens smelled smoke.  Minutes later, wildfires ravaged all. 

The eldest, a professional magician, performs for hospital patients. He  hopes to become a physician-magician. Today is his birthday.  He lost all his magic tricks.

The 8 Rosenthals welcome help paying for rent to coats to college.

Surrounded by love, the Rosenthals are determined to rise from the ashes.
