Woman survives Las Vegas attack only to have to flee California wildfires

The Flores home on Sullivan Way in Santa Rosa destroyed after the wildfires on Oct. 9 2017

Ms Flores, who has worked as a firefighter and paramedic before taking up her current job as a part-time flight attendant and customer service representative at Kaiser Air in Santa Rosa, told KTVU she returned to California and headed to her parents' home.

"Puerto Rico", she told CNN. "I just thought, well, I've been in these situations before". She was there because of a discount they offer to flight crews.

The building is blocks away from the Mandalay Bay hotel, where Paddock set up his sniper's nest and unleashed the deadliest mass shooting in modern United States history.

"This Sunday, I was running from fire", she said, speaking to KTVU. It wasn't until after the gunfire resumed after a short break that she realized that what she was hearing.

"That's when everybody started screaming and coming out of the festival screaming, 'Shooter!'" Flores told CNN.

Flores, who works as a flight attendant, flew into Las Vegas on the morning of October 1.

Flores took cover in the conference room of a nearby casino, barricading herself inside with other festival-goers and waiting in terror for the all-clear hours later. 'It drove me nuts'.

'You're sitting there waiting for someone to open the door and be shot, ' she said.

She looked out her hotel room window, toward the site of the festival. Nearly everything I own is gone. When she returned, she got the bad news: While she was gone, the fire jumped from nearby trees to the house.

Michella Flores had returned to her parents' home, in the city of Santa Rosa, days after fleeing the bullets of gunman Stephen Paddock, who killed 58 people on the Las Vegas strip. "This Sunday, I was running from fire".

Flores told KTVU that she has been a firefighter and first responder in her past, and she knew that an ominous orange glow over the hillside near her parents' house was cause for concern.

She told her parents they should probably start packing their things and left to take her dog to a park. The house was totally destroyed, with Flores and her parents losing all of her belongings including a special bike she loved. "When I was fighting the fire at my house, I was more in a "task" mode, and so I compartmentalized it".

Overnight, the house burned to the ground. At 4 or 5 a.m., she said, the house was mostly intact, so she drove to Oakland to attend training for work while her parents went to an evacuation center. "There's a ton of people there, so it's tough to think about processing it, because there's a lot going on still", she said.

Thankfully, she and her parents were able to move into the rental Flores was preparing.
