The deadly California wildfire burning out of control near Sacramento has claimed at least 48 lives and dozens more remain unaccounted for. More than 6,400 homes were destroyed by the fast-moving Camp Fire blaze, many in Paradise, a community of 27,000 people.

Here is a quick and easy way that you can help those communities and the people and animals displaced by the devastating fire.

You can donate through Give 11 and the Minnesota Community Foundation. The funds raised go directly to the Red Cross or the Animal Humane Society to help those affected by the wildfires.
