After Evacuating His Own Home, Guy Fieri Cooks Up Thousands of Meals For Wildfire Victims

Just days after evacuating his own home with his family, celebrity chef Guy Fieri wasted no time in giving back to his fellow California wildfire victims and first responders.

The Food Network star says that he and his wife were awoken in their Santa Rosa home by the smell of smoke on Monday morning.
"The smoke was really bad," Fieri told KQED. "We had to evacuate at two in the morning, and we grabbed what we could, taking pictures off the wall as fast as we could. Jumped in the truck, loaded in the dogs, and away we went."

Though their house was unharmed by the wildfires, Fieri became determined to help his community by doing what he does best: cooking.
On Thursday, Fieri set up shop outside the Veterans Memorial Building in Santa Rosa with a wood-fired oven and a barbecue smoker in tow. He and his crew then started cooking coleslaw, barbecued chicken, bean salad, and other warm meals for anyone who needed one.
The star told news sources that on their first day alone, the crew managed to serve up roughly 3,700 meals to Sonoma County residents.
Fieri is also raising money in conjunction with the Salvation Army so he can continue cooking at least 5,000 meals a day for evacuees and volunteers.

Man Who Helped Rescue Kidnapped Girl Gives Her His $7,000 Reward

After helping to rescue a young woman who had just escaped her kidnappers, this 65-year-old man then handed over his $7,000 reward because she was "the real hero".
Earl Melchert first saw 15-year-old Jasmine Block when he returned to his home in Alexandria, Minnesota last month in order to retrieve a diesel can that he had forgotten to grab earlier that day.
The teen had only just escaped from a nearby abandoned house after her kidnappers had gone out to eat. After knocking on the doors of several neighboring homes without any luck, Block swam across a lake and started trekking across Melchert's field when he spotted her.
Melchert brought Block back to his home where they called the police and organized the arrest of her kidnappers.
Ever since Block first disappeared, law enforcement officials had been offering $7,000 for any information on her whereabouts. When they handed Earl the check for the reward earlier this week, however, he immediately gave it to Block.
"Today we witnessed an incredible example of kindness," says Alexandria Police Chief Rick Wyffels. "Earl Melchert, the man who made the call everyone was waiting for … was presented with the reward money that had been offered by the Sarah Block family and an anonymous source."
"What no one expected was the kindness and generosity that came straight from Earl's heart today. He believes that young lady that came running towards him that September day is the real hero and without hesitation, Earl handed the reward over to her, followed by a big hug."
"The family needs the money," Melchert told the New York Times. "To me, yeah, that's a lot of money, but they need it way worse than I do."

From WSB-TV / Atlanta

As a child, Montana Brown beat cancer — twice.
Along the way, she dreamed of growing up to become a pediatric nurse. This week, Montana started working as a nurse at the same hospital that saved her life.
When Montana was just two years old, she was diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare type of cancer of the connective tissue. She underwent chemotherapy at the Children's Healthcare of Atlanta's Cancer Center.
By the time Montana reached high school, she had been active in competitive gymnastics and competitive cheerleading for years. Then the family got shocking news at the end of her freshman year: The 15-year-old had cancer again. She underwent chemotherapy at CHOA again.
Montana said it was those encounters with nurses as a toddler and then years later as a teenager that pushed her to decide nursing was her calling.
"The nurses here, as great as they were when I was 2 -- from what my mom says -- they were extremely loving and caring and compassionate. And, just the love they showed me and my family in our time of need just really helped me," she told WSB-TV Atlanta.
"I really wanted to be that person where when I said, 'Hey, I totally understand. This is where I was. This is where I am now.' That me and my patients would form a bond. I'm not walking through the doors as a patient anymore. I am walking through as a staff member."
