Across California, at least four firefighters have been injured and at least eight have lost their homes. In all, two dozen fires are raging across Washington state, Oregon and California.

Firefighters hoped that lower temperatures and a chance of rain on Tuesday would help them gain ground against the blazes.

Kaleigh, a senior at Middletown High School, said she was playing soccer when the fire erupted on Saturday.

“We had to make sure the smoke wasn’t too bad to play,” she said. But then the players were told to leave during the second half. The family left shortly after that with the few items they could grab and their two dogs.

Kaleigh and her family are staying in Stockton with her aunt and uncle. She said the family will probably live with another family member in Hidden Valley while rebuilding their home.

Hopefully the firefighters will have the help in the form of rain soon…
