Sacramento Fire Department honors those who lost their lives, property and livelihoods to the Tubbs Fire, one year ago, this week.
The Tubbs Fire was one of the most destructive fires in California’s history, delivering a firestorm that claimed the lives of 22 people and leveled more than 5,600 structures in Napa and Sonoma counties during October 2017.
More than 20 firefighters from Sacramento Fire were deployed to help support firefighting efforts.
“Sacramento crews saw firsthand the destruction and turmoil of the Tubbs Fire, with the clarity of knowing that our region often faces a similar threat,” said Sacramento Fire Chief Gary Loesch.
“We respond to our neighbors in need and our thoughts and prayers are still with the communities of Santa Rosa, Napa, Sonoma and Lake County communities.”
