Amber Short was evacuated from her Kittitas County home early this week due to the Taylor Bridge fire.

She was allowed to return home Friday night. She and her fiance were relieved to find their home undamaged.

But overnight, fire broke out nearby. She was forced to flee as the flames approached. Her home was destroyed.

Now Short is getting support from the community. In fact, she was back Saturday evening volunteering at the clothing bank in Cle Elum where she volunteered time earlier in the week.
