The Southern Arizona Chapter of the American Red Cross will be sending a volunteer to Southern California to assist with the wildfire disaster relief efforts, according to the press release.

John will be leaving from Erie Airport early on Friday morning.

Any resulting difference in fares will be waived, provided the change is made to the same class of service and there is no change in origin and destination. Information also is available at the airline's website at hawaiianairlines.com. More Hawaii volunteers are on standby to possibly deploy.

On the Red Cross aid, six volunteers from Hawaii will be deploying, including the one from Molokai, identified as Lester Keanini.

The fires are threatening thousands of homes and evacuations have been ordered for 140,000 residents.

Red Cross said more than 430 people spent the night in the shelters Tuesday. Ventura County fire officials say the blaze broke out Monday east of Santa Paula, a city of 30,000 people about 60 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles. Officials said unsafe conditions are expected to threaten the region for much of this week. A total of seven shelters have been opened so far, Dugaw said.
