Carr Fire One Year Later: Our Redding Person Reports

Cal Fire

Our broadcast signals reach from Mendocino in the south to Eugene in the north.  But our people generally work out of the studios in Ashland. 

One notable exception: Valerie Ing, who works and lives in Redding.  She was there a year ago this week, when the Carr Fire swept into town, destroying hundreds of homes.  Hers was spared, but she knew plenty of people who had to start from scratch.  Our lookback to the Carr Fire continues with Val... of all of us, she has the most vivid memories of what happened that night, and what has happened since to set the world aright.
