Oak Fire Victim Needs Your Help


The following is a statement accompanying a GoFundMe written by Rochelle Harn’s daughter Yvonne Mayshark seeking donations for the the Rochelle Harn Fire Recovery Fund:

The Oak Fire in Mendocino County started on September 7, 2020, and immediately a mandatory evacuation order was put into place. My Mom, Rochelle Harn, had only a few minutes to gather her cat, dog and important documents before fleeing the fire. Her beautiful country home burned to the ground. 

My mom has spent her entire life helping others. She has worked over three decades as an Emergency Room nurse. Anyone who knows her, knows that she is full of compassion and gratitude. It pains me to see my mother in retirement, having to start her life over from scratch. Any donations made will help Rochelle to rebuild her life. 

Immediately, she is in need of clothing, toiletries, bedding, furniture and money for temporary housing. Long term goals include permanent housing and toxic-waste clean up of burned materials on her property.

Any donation, small or large, is greatly appreciated.

I like to think of myself as a reporter for the Average Joe. Journalism has become a craft defined largely by city dwellers on America's coasts. It’s time to take it back. I have been an Emerald Triangle resident since 2006 and this is year ten in Mendocino County. Please, email me at matthewplafever@gmail.com if you know a story that needs to be told.
