The Old Fire erupted in the hills of Calabasas on Saturday, scorching 516 acres and forcing thousands of people to evacuate.

The fire was about 80 percent contained by Monday morning, and evacuation orders have been lifted. But major damage is left behind. At least one house was damaged and one commercial building was destroyed. Large swaths of the Calabasas hills are charred.

Shari Davis had hoped to run a summer day camp out of Calabasas. As a matter of fact, it was supposed to be the opening year for Camp Wildcraft. But Davis says the camp site burned.
