“A lot of homes lost yesterday," Hartwig said at a news conference Wednesday morning.
"There will be a lot of families that will come home to nothing.
If there’s a bright side, a silver lining, there are some homes that were saved.” “If we ask you to leave, you have to leave,” John Miller, spokesman for the U.S.
Forest Service, told reporters.
“The worst thing that can happen is for people to wait to the last minute, dial 911 and firefighters and law enforcement are unable to get people out of their homes.”
