Valley Fire: rain sweeps across fire stricken area

(KRON) Rain is falling in Lake, Sonoma and Napa Counties hit hard by the Valley Fire. We have been receiving video from KRON4 viewers and reporters in the area.

The rain is falling steadily at an evacuation center where hundreds of people fleeing a Northern California wildfire are staying in trucks and tents.

Pat Morales, Red Cross camp manager, says a large outdoor canopy is in place for people who want relief from the rain but have dogs too large to go into buildings.

The center at the Napa County fairgrounds is feeding about 1,000 people at each meal. The food is being prepared by wine country chefs who are donating their time and skill.

Andrew Wild is an adjunct at the Culinary Institute of America in St. Helena and a caterer. He says he showed up at the center Saturday night, hours after it opened, and started giving orders in the kitchen.

He’s working with donated sausages, hundreds of pounds of ice, truckloads of produce, and canned goo
