Solstice Senior Living employees partnering with American Heart Association, Go Red!
SANTA ROSA, Calif. (KTVU) – The Tubbs Fire exploded on a Sunday night, October 8th. By early Monday morning, the firestorm’s front and its hurricane force winds blew into the Fountain Grove area of Santa Rosa.
Perched on top of a hill along Round Barn Boulevard is the Solstice Senior Living. Solstice is an independent living community home to about 120 senior citizens who awoke from their sleep to the sound of fire alarms and to smell of smoke.
Resident Candy Butwill had recently moved in. “That was a very scary situation,” said Butwill, “Because between the fire and heavy smoke, it was thicker than fog.”
On October 8, 2018 Solstice Senior Living aired on KTVU Channel 2 News for the one-year anniversary of the fires. KTVU came to Solstice to interview the fire fighters who rescued the residents as well as several of the residents.
Our Temporary Kitchen has been permitted and inspected, and will be operational starting Tuesday 11/21. We are excited to have residents back in the community and wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving!
We are excited to announce that residents at home with family can begin returning this Saturday 11/18. Residents are asked to curtail their visits to the community prior to the weekend; thank you. We look forward to seeing you all this weekend.
