BURBANK, Calif. - Ellen Degeneres recognized a Calfire firefighter and his girlfriend on the Ellen Show today.

Eric Johnson and Hope Jordan live in Redding. The couple lost their home in the carr fire.

Eric has been an engineer with Calfire for nine fire seasons.

He told Ellen he had never seen a fire season like this before- working 24-hours on, and 24-hours off for two weeks.

Eric and Hope had been working on improvements to their home since 2015.

They renovated the inside just before it was burned down.

Their friends started a "Go-Fund-Me" page with a goal to raise $20,000.

So far, they've raised $12,203.

Ellen said, firefighters put their lives on the line every day. So she, along with Shutterfly, want to help those in need when they can.

"I wanna help when I can and I love firefighters and it's just devastating what happened to you, so our friends at Shutterfly care about supporting people in need, they wanna round that up to $50,000 dollars," Ellen Degeneres said.

Ellen referred her viewers to her website with ways to help those affected by the Carr fire.

Her website is attached, to our website under newslinks.
