ABC7 News reporter Amy Hollyfield was involved in a touching moment yesterday. One woman thought her parents' home inside the fire zone had been lost and couldn't go back and check for herself.

"I am devastated. I have to go tell my parents that they've lost everything," said Jeanine Hardina.

Their home was not on an official list of homes in Lower Lake that survived the fire. So because the media is allowed behind the fire lines, Amy took the address went to check it out and broke the good news.
