An American flag stands at half staff on property in Superior destroyed by the Dec. 30 Marshall fire. Jan.14, 2022.

Shieko Uno went to run an errand last December, and while she was out, her house burned to the ground. Uno is a piano teacher. The Marshall Fire reduced the home where she taught for nearly 30 years, and her pianos, to ashes. Like many other fire survivors, she's left with the clothes on her back, memories, and a desire to find consolation where she can.
