CHICO, Calif. - One family from Chico moved to Windsor only to have to evacuate from the Kincade Fire over the weekend.

17-year-old Kamryn Crowley evacuated her younger siblings and pets from their home in Windsor on Saturday morning as the Kincade Fire engulfed areas surrounding their town.

Crowley's father was busy preparing the city for evacuation and her mother was already in Chico visiting family.

She says she was more focused on getting her family to safety than being nervous about the fire.

"I got all the kids, told them what was happening," said Crowley. "I was like 'Hey, we gotta go pack a bag, grab all the animals, grab whatever you wanna, we gotta get in the car and go.'"

Crowley's mom, who was anxiously waiting, said she watched where they were on her iPhone, following their location.

Crowley says stepping up felt natural to her.

"I just got everyone in the car and just left – just kept driving," said Crowley.
