Humboldt Airbnb hosts open their homes for free to wildfire evacuees

EUREKA, Calif. (KIEM) – A community of Airbnb hosts are opening their homes for those displaced by the Mendocino Complex Fire, Carr Fire, and other area wildfires.

Evacuees and first responders looking for temporary shelter are able to choose from 150 different accommodations around Northern California, and that number is growing each day.

On Friday, Redwood News spoke with one Eureka host who tells us you shouldn’t put a price on helping your neighbor.

“These are our neighbors, and they would do the same for us. These are people who are in need, and it’s a community that is hurting. So if we can help in just little ways, than that is what we will do,” said Donna Write, an Airbnb host.
