Raiders legends Tim Brown, Marcus Allen narrowly escape Santa Rosa fire

The Santa Rosa fires are impacting almost every walk of life in Northern California and even Oakland Raiders legends Tim Brown and Marcus Allen narrowly escaped disaster.

Brown told SiriusXM NFL that he was staying at a Santa Rosa bed and breakfast when he received a 2:30 a.m. wakeup call from Allen that he needed to evacuate, according to a report from Alex Marvez. He went out and knocked on the doors of two more ex-NFL players to wake them up because there was no fire alarm.

That bed and breakfast wound up burning down. And Brown, Allen and their friends are among the lucky ones because 36 people have died in the wildfires ravaging Northern California and 19 have died in the fire in Santa Rosa alone.

There’s been over $1.2 billion in damage done and 50,000 people have been evacuated from their homes according to the latest report from Santa Rosa Press Democrat. Dozens of fires are raging across the state of California and firefighters are struggling to contain the carnage.

That Santa Rosa bed and breakfast is one of 3,000 buildings destroyed in that individual fire. A total of 5,700 structures have been lost throughout California.
