As of Tuesday, 17 wildfires continue to roll throughout Northern California. Fifteen people have been confirmed killed and thousands have been displaced from their homes.
While people scramble to connect with their loved ones, the widespread power outage in affected areas is making it more challenging for many to find their family and relatives. Cal Fire reports that at least 200,000 people in Napa County are without power.
But help has also been widespread. There are at least 40 evacuation centers set up throughout Northern California, and several of them are accepting pets. A number of schools in Sonoma County and Napa County, which continue to be closed, have been converted to shelters.
The Red Cross has opened 11 evacuation centers throughout the area for both shelter and food. More than 2,400 people have already volunteered with the organization to help out, according to a Red Cross spokesperson. Food pantries and animal shelters are also receiving donations.
