Getting a flat tire on your way to work is stressful. Getting a flat tire on your way to the first day of new job after losing your home to fire? Even more so.

A sheriff deputy's good deed (and way around a lug wrench) recently made the day of one Sonoma County fire victim who found herself in just that situation.

In a Nov. 30 Facebook post that is warming the hearts of local residents, the sheriff's office shared a photo of one of its deputies nimbly helping out a woman stranded by a flat tire on the side of the road. The deputy even went as far as following her to a local tire shop to make sure she was okay.

Turns out, the two had a lot in common with the deputy also losing his home in the October fires. And her new job? Helping other fire victims get what they need to recover.
