Two survivors of The Holiday Farm Fire talk about their experiences from the night the fire ignited, to now. The first is the Upper McKenzie Fire District Chief, Chief Rainbow Plews, who led the fight against the fire when it was still less than an acre. The second is Robbin Roderick, who was the manager of Lazy Days RV Park, which is about four miles away from where the fire started.
