Sevierville Native Located Safe After Southern California Fire

Sevier County (WVLT) - A happy ending tonight for a Sevier County couple, who's daughter was unaccounted for in Southern California.

The Sevierville native is safe and sound.

Sabrina Cooper, 36, moved to the San Bernardino area earlier this year.

Her parents, Belinda and Randy Conner, hadn't heard from their oldest daughter since the wildfires started more than a week ago.

Volunteer TV spoke to the Conners' and they told us Sabrina contacted them Friday night and said she was fine.

She had been in college when the fires started and wasn't able to get to her house after the evacuations began.

Friday, she was able to go back to her house, but because of the smoke in the area she's staying in a hotel for the time being.
