Wildfire Evacuees Discuss Life at Shelter

More than 10,000 evacuees are waiting out the wildfires at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego.

A family of six had pitched two tents after leaving their house with nothing. They have no money, but there is a bounty of food available at the stadium.

Another couple has been living in their car. They spent their 59th wedding anniversary at the shelter.
