On Sept. 12, 2015, the Valley Fire swept through Lake County, burning through 70,000 acres of woodland, killing four people and torching 1,280 structures, including the Carolynn Spezza's home in Middletown. Now, two years into the recovery process, 75-80 percent of the structures that burned have not been rebuilt.
