VALLEY FIRE VICTIM IDENTIFIED AS 72-YEAR-OLD WOMAN WITH MS: VIDEO






















The fast-moving Valley Fire that's burning across three Bay Area counties claimed the life of a 72-year-old Anderson Springs resident. Cal Fire says they were unable to save her from the fire Saturday night.

So far, Barbara McWilliams is the only confirmed fatality in the Valley Fire. She suffered from multiple sclerosis and couldn't get out of her house on her own.

Deputies were dispatched to her home on Hot Springs Road in Anderson Springs near Middletown. But by the time they got there, the entire subdivision was engulfed in flames.

Along Highway 29 at the top of the mountain, less than 10 miles from Middletown, there is a CHP roadblock. It's a place of gathering frustration among fire victims.


A barn stands undamaged while surrounded by blackened grasses and in view of still smoldering fence posts Monday, Sept. 14, 2015, near Middletown, Calif. AP

"I know that Middletown is burned down, most of it," said one evacuee.

Fellow fire victim Tyler Drew added, "There is too many people on that mountain right now. We can't turn these trailers around. We have to get through."

They have livestock to feed. And some of them might still have homes. For the others, homes along Highway 175 north of Middletown have been reduced to rubble and ruin. Testimony to heat, fury, and the illogic separating what burned, with what the fire spared.

"They were homes, beautiful homes," said Kelseyville resident Jennifer Hittson.

She knew the Anderson Springs neighborhood especially well. Hittson says she worked for McWilliams, cleaning and doing chores around the house. When Hittson left that house at 3 p.m., they both knew of the fire, but not that it would come that way.
