She said she didn't have any time to grab her purse and apologized for not having her ID. She and her husband had been living out of their truck since the fire engulfed their house and they did not want to stay at a shelter. People of Progress connected them with local emergency resources for fire victim/evacuees, FEMA information, and provided them with food.
