BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - A new group of volunteers is starting up to help families search through their burned homes.

The group, Samaritan's Purse, has gotten in touch with 1,800 families so far that have been affected by the Camp Fire. 

They search through properties impacted by the Camp Fire in an effort to recover personal belongings that may have not been destroyed in the fire. 

"What we are doing here in Paradise is, as you can see, so many homes have burned to the ground and we are here on the ground helping them find personal belongings as well as provide spiritual support," said Alyssa Benson, a volunteer with Samaritan's Purse. 

Samaritan's Purse says it is looking for more local volunteers to help in their recovery efforts. For more information, CLICK HERE

Cooler weather the next few days before we warm up again this weekend flirting with more record high temperatures. By next week we get even cooler but we also have the possibility of high fire danger next week.
