Facing the loss of a home -- again

We've seen some incredible photos and video of wildfires on the site during the past few days, but these images from Montecito, California, took my breath away.

 

 

iReporter and film student macfaulkner was part of documentary team led by director Tracy Trotter that followed a family who lost their home during last year's Tea Fire. Just weeks ago, the family moved into a new house thanks to donations from local companies.

 

Now, as wildfires blaze throughout Santa Barbara County, the family's home is again in danger. Through compelling photos, macfaulkner was able to capture the difficult situation they face.

 

"It made my stomach churn watching the flames make their way toward something everyone had worked so hard to achieve," he wrote. "And for the family that had already lost so much, to have to face it all again would be devastating."

 

We hope macfaulkner will continue to follow this family's story as the wildfires continue. And if wildfires are active near you, we want to hear your story as well.
