ROCKLIN, Calif. - A family displaced by the deadly Camp Fire got the gift of holiday spirit from new neighbors in Rocklin.

The whole community came together to hang Christmas lights for the family and provide them with almost $500 worth of gift cards to help them get back on their feet. 

The Ryan's lost their home in the Camp Fire weeks ago, and they say that the ordeal has been hardest on their kids. 

"It's been really hard," said Rubi Ryan, who lost her home in the fire. "They had anxiety, they were crying, they were sad, they miss their friends, they miss their house, but now that everybody at school has been so good to them and have welcomed them, they're happy to be here."

Many of the neighbors saw the destruction that the fire caused on TV and through other outlets and wanted to find a way to give back. 

"I think watching the tragedy on tv, it really affects everybody," said a neighbor in Rocklin. "But nobody knows how to help, you know. This was a concrete way to come out and give back and welcome them to our neighborhood."
