Amateur Muay Thai fighter Daniel Chappell spends at least five nights a week training at Saekson’s Muay Thai in Van Nuys, Calif. Chappell credits Muay Thai for much of his personal growth, “I have never been this disciplined and focused with anything in my life. I have never felt connected to something as much as this.

Penny and Ron Stark relax at an evacuation center located at Pierce College in Woodland Hills, California on November 9, 2018 after evacuating their home in Oak Park, California the night before due to the Woolsey Fire.

The couple has lived in Oak Park for the last 50 years and have been evacuated from their home 3 times due to fires, but they refuse to move, because it is their home and they love it.
