Chris and Anne Gutierrez received that dreaded call while on vacation, "your house had a major fire and you have no place to live."

Chris and Anne Gutierrez received that dreaded call we all hope to never get while on vacation, "your house had a major fire and you have no place to live upon your return." On June 16th a Chico fire crew was leaving a medical incident about 4:50 a.m. when engineer Zack Plottel smelled smoke in the air and the crew started searching the neighborhood.

The crew saw smoke pouring out of an attic gable at the home of Chris and Anne Gutierrez, entered the attic and found it was full of smoke, according to a press release by the Chico Fire Department. Six to eight joists were already charred.

The firefighters contacted dispatch and extinguished the flames.

Fire Chief Jim Beery, three engines, one truck, volunteer firefighters and two Cal Fire-Butte County engines responded to the incident.

Because the home was almost a total loss the family is displaced and having to find other living accommodations during the rebuild of their family home. Although insurance will assist, many unexpected expenses are coming up placing a stress on this family.

Anne Gutierrez is a member of the Management Resource Center team and as such we are banding together to help raise funds for the family to help with expenses. Please help with any amount you are able; your generosity is greatly appreciated.
