Community Story Project Collects Accounts Of Almeda Fire
Thousands of people have stories to tell about their experiences fleeing the September fires of this year. The Almeda Fire alone destroyed more than 2,400 homes, inflicting a lasting scar on the community.
One of the pathways to healing is to tell the story of the fire, and The Hearth and De La Raiz are offering opportunities to do that. An online event will collect stories of the Almeda Fire for presentation in special showings December 17 and 18, in both English and Spanish.
Mark Yaconelli of The Hearth and Erica Ledesma of De La Raiz discuss the plans.
