REDDING, Calif. - Organizations are now helping Carr Fire victims prepare for the coming winter.

The McConnell Foundation and other agencies were giving away erosion control material Saturday for free, and they will be giving more away on Sunday and next weekend.

David Tate is in the midst of the process of rebuilding. 

"It has been so overwhelming how gracious and how generous," he said. "We have been given so much."

The giveaway continues at the old Schnitzer Steel Facility located at 8031 Eastside Road in Redding.

It was slightly hotter today around northern California with far more sun than cloud cover. We'll have another mostly sunny and hot day on Thursday, but changes will arrive before the week is complete.
