In the early morning darkness of Monday Oct. 9 Phyllis Rogers had time to grab a single bag before fleeing her home. It was the bag she had been carrying around the day before− a cloth grocery-style tote with the Lions’ motto stamped on it. Rogers assumed her wallet would be inside the bag. With a wildfire raging nearby and the electricity out, she wasn’t able to check. It was only later, after she had escaped one of the many wildfires that killed 43 people and destroyed more than 8,900 structures in California, that she realized she did not have her wallet.
