Some Fawn fire evacuees are worried for their homes and loved ones

REDDING Calif.- The Fawn Fire is still raging North of Redding. Fire crews are doing all they can to get the flames under control, but the wind and rugged terrain are making it a challenge.

Action News Now spoke to some evacuees about their ordeal, Shellene Croxton lives near where the Fawn fire started. She says she was ready to go, but her husband stayed behind.

“I’m more worried about my husband not leaving. I could replace everything else, so talking about it makes it more real, I think, I got our important stuff, and the rest of the stuff I could replace, Croxton said.”

Susan Eversole also evacuated. she says it’s been a brutal fire season

“I’m anxious, and I’m not happy about that. We have suffered enough here in the north state with all these fires," Eversole said.

Meanwhile, Croxton says she is hopeful her house is still standing when she gets back.

“I didn’t think it would get this close to us, as long as the wind stays till the southeast, I think we’ll be okay, but it’s right in our backfield where we keep our horses; I have a good fire break because we have horses and they eat all the grass and stomp it down, my house is protected, but I have a lot of trees,” Croxton said.

Croxton says she is thankful for firefighters and plans on evacuating to Anderson with her family.
