1. Helicopters took the 150-200 people that were stuck there out. Scary.

#CreekFire (Sierra NF, Fresno/Madera Co) - 2nd National Guard copter is departing w/ 37 more civilians onboard. That is the last evacuation flight for the night, 2 civilians refused transport & are staying behind. My count: over 200 rescued by the National Guard tonight.

3. Ugh! I hate when I hear that

To me, at the very least, they should have to pay the cost of evacuating especially if they suddenly change their minds late in the tragedy.
