Middletown High School prepares for homecoming after Valley Fire

MIDDLETOWN, Calif. (KGO) -- Friday is homecoming for many high schools, including Middletown High, a community devastated by the Valley Fire nearly two months ago.

About half the Lake County town was destroyed when the huge fire swept through on September 12.

That was a week before Middletown High School's homecoming. The event had been rescheduled for this weekend.

A San Ramon woman helped collect 150 dresses and shoes for the town's teens.

The festivities kick off with a community barbecue Friday afternoon.
