Three years ago today, life in Sonoma County changed forever. Many of us went to sleep the night of October 8, 2017 unsettled by the unusually wild winds in Santa Rosa. None of us ever expected in a million years what would unfold throughout the course of that very long night. A fire started in Calistoga around 2:00 am and spread like an inferno at a rapid speed fueled by 60 miles per hour winds, reaching the city of Santa Rosa within a few hours. Thousands of people woke up in the middle of the night, some having minutes to grab their loved ones and run for their lives. 22 human lives were lost on that tragic evening.
