Knoxville (WVLT) - A volunteer from the Red Cross here in Knoxville is in San Diego. Theresa Dorian left early Wednesday afternoon to help with the relief effort.

"There are lots of fires and a lot of people who need a lot of help out there, and I'm a trained disaster volunteer, and so I go when i'm called, basically," Dorian said.
