Vernon Mayer of Ward, Arkansas, told us he and his wife lost their Sawmill Road home in Paradise, California, this past week because of the fires.
Mayer moved to California about 15 years ago. He said he graduated from Cabot High School.
The Arkansan talked about losing his favorite Razorback memorabilia.
He lists his prior employment as a dispatcher for NLR, a police officer in Beebe and a jailor for the Lonoke Sheriff’s office.
He told us his home was hit by the 1999 tornado in Beebe.
The couple asks for Arkansans help.
He currently works in law enforcement in California. He could not tell us the specific department as he was not authorized to talk to media as an employee.
