Southern Baptist Disaster Relief in California

FRESNO, Calif. (BP)—Southern California’s wildfires, which burst to fury over the weekend, have destroyed an estimated 1,300 homes in seven counties thus far -– and prompted the evacuation of 350,000 homes, killed two people and injured several dozen others, including at least 16 firefighters, according to news reports.

Three California Southern Baptist disaster relief feeding teams were called up Monday, Oct. 22, in response to the wildfires which stretch from Santa Barbara to San Diego.
By all estimates, containment of the fires, which have been fueled by fierce winds and high temperatures, remains days away.
