"We have no place to live, no place to go," Patrick Noone said. "We have to pay out of pocket to go find a place to put ourselves. I have to provide for my family somehow and I can't even work now with having to do all of that."
The fire happened Friday evening around 6 p.m. near the Steamboat Landing at the Sacramento River. Several fire departments including the River Delta Fire District are now investigating how the fire started. Also damaged by the fire was the dock and approximately one acre of vegetation on Highway 160.
Kayla McCall shared video with KCRA 3. She said the fire quickly turned their family's decades of savings into debris.
Noone was emotional as he recounted the 20 years of savings it took him to buy his 70-foot boat in Southern California.
McCall and Noone had been living with their daughters at the dock along the highway for three years.
They said some insurance money should kick in but don't believe it'll cover the entire cost of the boat.
The family is depending on donations from friends and family to help them buy new clothes and essentials for their children.
After the fire, the River Delta Fire District sent out its oil spill recovery trailer to the scene to protect the environment and wildlife from the oil and fuel.
