JURUPA VALLEY (CNN) – A family displaced by the Camp Fire will be calling Southern California home for a while thanks to the generosity of complete strangers.

Daniel and Autumn Salazar along with their two children, lived in Paradise until the town was destroyed in the Camp Fire. 

The family only had time to grab a few belongings and evacuate. They lost almost everything including Daniel’s grandparents. 

Mike and Ruth Zangara have a home in the Jurupa Valley but spend most of their time in a small apartment in Downtown Los Angeles so they can be close to work. 

The couple posted an offer on Facebook to lend their home to a family in need and more than 1,000 families applied. 

Now the Salazar family has moved in, but they’re still trying to adjust. 

“It’s gotten better. It’s still a lot of change but this home’s beautiful and our kids love it here,” Autumn Salazar said. 

The family will be able to stay in the property rent-free for an entire year and only have to pay for utilities.
