A California Couple ‘Adopted’ a 93-Year-Old Veteran After His Town Burned to the Ground
Tracy Grant was in a parking lot handing out hamburgers to evacuees from the devastating Camp Fire in Northern California when she encountered Lee Brundige. The 93-year-old World War II veteran had just fled his house in Paradise by driving his own car as the wildfire was approaching. "He called me the burger girl," Grant says. "It took us about 24 hours to convince him to follow me home."
