A California woman took in a 93-year-old World War II veteran who was unsure whether his home hadn’t been charred by the Camp Fire that has killed 48.

Tracy Grant, of Oroville, was handing out hamburgers at the Forebay Aquatic Center when she met Lee Brundige.

Once smoke hindered the air quality around the center – just 20 miles south of Paradise – the 43-year-old convinced the frazzled Brundige to come with her home.

‘When I first met him, I knew he was special,’ Grant explained to the San Francisco Chronicle. ‘He was the only person in this parking lot who was by himself with no one else with him. I made it my mission to keep my eye on him. When the rangers came, I went up to him and said, ‘You’re coming with me.”

The veteran hadn’t changed in two days so Grant provided him with a bathrobe while she washed his clothes.

She called her boyfriend – Josh Fox – who immediately stopped to buy clothes for Brundige while on his way home from his job in Sacramento.

‘I just want to warn you, there’s a man in your recliner wearing your robe,’ she told him. ‘And he’s the cutest little 93-year-old you’ve met.’

And the two immediately hit it off as Fox was a history buff captivated with details surrounding World War II. Both of his late grandfathers had served in the war.
