SONOMA, Calif. — Teri Reynolds-Thompson is newly homeless.

Reynolds-Thompson, 65, a retired nurse, lost everything when one of the monstrous fires ravaging Northern California swept into her cul-de-sac. She, her two kids and their two dogs are now sleeping on Red Cross cots inside the gymnasium at Sonoma Valley High School.

“My house is burned to the ground, and I have no insurance,” Reynolds-Thompson said, wiping tears from under her blue-rimmed glasses.
