Tucsonans ditch honeymoon to volunteer for wildfires

Posted: Updated:

Two local journalists and recent newlyweds Michel Marizco and Andrea Kelly have decided to ditch their honeymoon and instead devote their time to train and volunteer with the American Red Cross to help those impacted California wildfires.

“We wanted to help people," Marizco said.

The couple said they will be working the graveyard shift at a Northern California shelter and they wouldn't have it any other way. Marizco grew up in Santa Rosa, California and said he has never seen a fire this bad, where entire neighborhoods are burned to the ground.

"This is where Michel's whole family is when we got married on Saturday they were all there. By Monday morning they were all evacuating so we're just here to do what we can,” Kelly said.
