SOLANO COUNTY – On the night of Tuesday, August 18, a fiery-orange glow ripped through the outskirts of Vacaville and surrounding areas.

Homes and businesses were decimated and humans, as well as animals, lost their lives.

Although over 7,000 residences were immediately threatened within the Vacaville area alone, no structures were lost within the city limits, thanks to our firefighters and volunteers working beyond exhaustion on the front lines and truly giving their all.

Michael Muir, the grandson of John Muir and great humanitarian, lost his home in the fire. Michael owns Access Adventure, a nonprofit that provides outdoor recreation, open space access, education and therapy for people with disabilities.

While out fighting this fire, some of our very own Solano firefighters received news that their families had lost their homes.

With that, disaster relief fundraisers have been created to help all of those in need through these trying times. Please consider donating – 100% of the proceeds will go to these fire victims.
