Fires continued to ravage Southern California and thousands were forced to evacuate after multiple brush fires erupted across the Southland on Thursday.



"Coming into Ventura County, everyone has been so welcoming, I feel a part of the community," restaurant owner, Sadaf Nezhad said. "I did some research and called around and I found out the firefighters are camping at Conejo Creek Park, so that's where we are going to take a big lunch to the fire fighters."

Nezhad's restaurant is only 8 months old. She thought a warm lunch would be a great way to give back and show gratitude to all the firefighters fighting blazes to protect homes and properties in her new community.
