Cherry Flats, Calif.-- Rachel Bagwell said she lost everything in the Beaver Fire. She lives in the Cherry Flats area near the Klamath National Forest.

The fire started on July 30th and turned 12 days later reaching her home. She said at that point it moved fast. Burning her cabin, trailer, and water shed.

Bagwell said she barely had time to get out let alone grab her belongings.

"All our baby pictures are gone. My daughter's tricycle, heirlooms. It's stuff that can't be replaced and luckily we have our lives and we have today. So we're really grateful.

The Beaver Fire is 32,300 acres and it's 87% contained.
