Folsom was reportedly told initially that her house was one of the ones that was seen burning, news that inspired an outpouring of support from Folsom's friends, families and supporters on her Facebook page.
As it turns out, Folsom's home appears to be one of three in the area that's been spared. Here's to hoping this is indeed true and remains true as firefighters work tirelessly to extinguish the fire, and that the skies open up and give them some help by sending down a torrent of rain.
We'll keep you updated as more news becomes available. In the meantime, thoughts and prayers go out to Folsom, her family and her neighbors in Sunshine during this clearly harrowing time.
