    Survivors of last year's Witch Creek Fire, Pamela Scodellaro hugs her son Michael as daughter Naomi Scodellaro looks at the presents under their new live decorated Christmas tree complete with wrapped presents donated by local company Creative Nail Designs of Vista.

    Christmas arrived early last week for six families who were victims of last year's devastating Witch Creek fires, according to a published report.

    For the second year, Creative Nail Design of Vista provided decorated Christmas trees, wrapped presents and gift cards to some Ramona area families who lost their homes in the October 2007 fires.

    One of those fire victims, Pamela Scodellaro, seemed awed by the donated tree and the company's generosity when she spoke to the North County Times.

    "It's so beautiful. They're so sweet," the Ramona mother told the paper, after setting up the festively adorned tree in the manufactured home where she lives with her four children.

    The Ramona Fire Recovery Center delivered the trees to the local families on Tuesday and Thursday.
