In November, he and his wife drove away from their house as the Camp Fire approached, but they abandoned their vehicles and walked to the nearby Walgreens where they were rescued by a school bus. The Stentzels returned to their Paradise property where they live in a trailer purchased with their insurance money. After losing his piano in the fire, Marty decided to pick up the accordion.
