I didn't know what to think.
Cuase you never know what could happen at any time.
THE FAMILY RUSHED TO THE POW WOW GROUNDS IN TOWN.
AND WAITED FOR WORD OF WHAT WAS HAPPENING.
NOT LONG AFTER.
KAYJA GOT THE NEWS SHE'D BEEN DREADING.
HER HOME WAS GONE.

I'm just startging to build my house.
I'm just building on.
I don't even have water yet.
So, I was scared, I just thought I'd lost everything
I'd been building.
HOWEVER, AFTER THAT CALL.
THE FIRST REPORT WAS A FALSE ALARM.
AND WHILE THE FIRE HAD GOTTEN CLOSE TO KAYJA'S PROPERTY.
HER HOME WAS STILL STANDING.
:52 - :58
Happy that all our houses were still there.
BUT KAYJA UNDERSTANDS THAT DOESN'T MEAN SHE'S OUT
OF THE CLEAR YET.
:02 - :08
It could change any minute.
Just could go.
depending on the wind or anything, it jcould turn.
ESPECIALLY WHEN SHE'S SEEN THE DESTRUCTION HIT PEOPLE

A lot of friends and family who have lost their homes.
BUT THERE HAS BEEN SOME GOOD IN THIS WHOLE EXPERIENCE.
KAYJA SAYS SHE'S SEEN HER RESERVATION COME TOGETHER
IN A TIME OF NEED.
