Local Red Cross volunteer heads to Colorado wildfires

SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - A local Red Cross volunteer is heading into the danger zone in Colorado.

We caught up with Lisamarie Griffin Saturday as she was getting ready to fly out of Shreveport Regional Airport.

She tells us she'll be doing case work and finding out what the needs are of the people who have been affected by the wildfires.

"It's home for me," Griffin says. "I grew up in New Mexico, and I spent a lot of time in Colorado. So it's kind of like family for me. And anybody who's been affected by a wildfire, they need help. And my heart was just really pulled to go out there and donate some time."

The wildfires have destroyed more than 350 homes.
