Even as fires continued to burn, thoughts were turning to rebuilding Saturday. Rep. Mike Thompson, D-St. Helena, released a guide to resources for affected residents, including instructions on how to apply for federal aid.
“Our district pulls together in tough times,” Thompson said. “We’ve overcome challenges before by working together, and we will do so again. Should you need anything, my staff and I are here to help.”
Fires in Napa, Sonoma, Lake, and Mendocino counties have burned more than 250,000 acres and destroyed more than 6,000 homes. More than 30 people are confirmed dead and hundreds are unaccounted for.
