The 6.1-magnitude earthquake that shook the Napa area awake early Sunday morning also ended up destroying four mobile homes.

A gas leak was caused by the quake, leading to flames that swept through the Napa Valley Mobile Home Park.

Left behind were heads of charred and twisted metal, melted frames and furniture.

Lorraine Bendi almost lost everything else. She said her neighbors helped her escape the flames with just a few belongings.

"It is what it is. I'm sure I'm still in shock," Bendi said. "God will take care of me."

Aside from the four destroyed homes, several others shifted off of their foundations.
