"In northern California, where I was born and raised, the city of Paradise burned to the ground, and many of the residents that got out are now displaced," Rodgers - who is originally from Chico, California - said in the video.
A monstrous wildfire in Paradise has killed at least 81 people and destroyed more than 13,000 homes.
