Rincon Indians lose 65 structures
“We were left behind, nobody here to help,” Councilwoman Stephanie Spencer said yesterday. “We are doing everything we can with our casino and all our resources here, but they don't last forever.”
The Rincon and La Jolla reservations were hit hard by the Poomacha fire Tuesday morning, with tribal members and others seeking refuge in the Harrah's Rincon casino near Valley Center.
As of yesterday afternoon, 350 people remained at the casino-hotel.
