Three families are without a home tonight after watching their property burn this afternoon.
Right now those families are safe in local motels thanks to the Panhandle American Red Cross who provided shelter, food and water for evacuees. They say people were scared for their safety and concerned for their homes because most of them did not have their personal belongings with them.
"It's so important to be prepared for any kind of disaster. To have your belongings ready to go at a moments notice especially your valuables, sentimental things, your pets, your medication so you can pick-up and leave." said Red Cross Executive Director Vicky Richmond.
