Transcript for Californians stay strong amid wildfire aftermath
We are just back from California, but we won't soon forget what we saw and who we met. We took you to the coffee park neighborhood, completely wiped out. And that eerie sight. The fireplaces all still intact. One of the most stunning things in this neighborhood is everywhere you look, the only thing you see left standing are the chimneys. Every direction, just dozens of chimneys, nothing left of the homes. But amidst the rubble, the flag draped on the back of a burned-out pickup truck. Another in the mailbox still standing. And there was Mary coffee in Kenwood, California, overcome with joy. Finding her wedding ring. Her family looking on. So much bravery here. The sheriff who told me about his deputies. One of them who saved neighbors, all of them on a dirt patch as the fire moved in all around them. We had a deputy on top of mark west who had 40 people with him and they couldn't get out and the fire just burned around them and they just sheltered in place as it went around. Reporter: And then there was Kaitlyn bomb, who had the difficult task of preparing her 2-year-old as the fire now gets closer to their home. I know he's 2, but he just looked at me, he said, yes, mommy, it's okay. It's going to be okay. Reporter: A mother, comforted by the words of her boy. And we'll have the latest on the fires first thing in the morning on "Gma." Thank you for watching. I'm. David Muir. I hope to see you right back here tomorrow. Good night.
