Michella Flores escaped the Las Vegas massacre at a country music festival that left 58 dead and another 500 wounded.

When she returned to her home in Santa Rosa, Calif., she thought the worst was over.

But exactly one week later, the Santa Rosa house she shared with her parents erupted in flames, burning to the ground as a spate of wildfires wreaked havoc on the north bay area.

Almost everything her family owned -- photo albums, clothing, furniture, irreplaceable Christmas ornaments -- was destroyed in the blaze.

"I’m still trying to figure out – what’s the next step?" said Flores.

Flores and her parents have been sleeping in a temporary rental until she can find affordable long-term housing. she says she has been too busy trying to rebuild her life to even process what has happened over the last three weeks.

"Ok, this has got to stop,” said Flores. “That is all I kept thinking in my head. It's like, there has got to be an end to this. Where's the end?"
