(CNN)Every time Stephanie Stauer hears about a red flag warning, her anxiety spikes off the charts.

In 2017, the home in Santa Rosa, California, where she lived with her husband and two children was destroyed by the Tubbs Fire. In June, they moved into a new house, built on the same ground where their previous one stood.
But soon after firefighters began battling the Kincade Fire last week, the Stauers had to evacuate again.
"It's surreal. It's déjà vu. It's 'Oh my god, we're doing this again,'" she told CNN.
    The Stauers are among up to 186,000 residents under evacuation in Northern California's Sonoma County, where the state's largest active wildfire has been burning since October 23. As of Tuesday morning, the blaze had scorched more than 75,000 acres and only 15% of the fire had been contained.

    A familiar experience for the family

    The mandatory evacuation orders came Sunday morning.
    And with that, the family left their home in Santa Rosa. They bounced around from Walmart parking lots to Safeway parking lots to the Mercedes-Benz dealership where Nick works before ending up in a cabin at the KOA campground in Petaluma, where they've been since Sunday afternoon.
    This is what was left of the Stauers' home after it was destroyed by the Tubbs Fire in 2017.
    There's Stephanie, her husband Nick, her 16-year-old son and their two dogs. Their daughter is now in school in San Francisco. And there's her brother-in-law, her brother-in-law's significant other, their two children and their two cats, who had been staying with the Stauers after they were evacuated earlier from their home in Healdsburg.
    The Stauers have been through this before. And this time around, things were easier.
    "We had only been in our house since June and so a lot of the things we had accumulated had no sentimental value," she said.
    Aside from clothes and some basic necessities, all they took were the two boxes of photos collected by friends and family members in the aftermath of losing everything in 2017.
    They've been back to check on the home and get some supplies such as towels and extra blankets to keep warm in the uninsulated cabin, Stauer said. Things have quieted down now in the area, and they're hoping it stays that way.

    The fire that destroyed their home

    One night in October 2017, the Stauers heard someone pounding on their door.
    It was about 2:30 in the morning, and someone was telling them they needed to get out. Fountaingrove, the neighborhood in Santa Rosa where they lived, was on fire.
    "The sky was completely orange and red," Stauer said. "It looked like it was on top of us."
    The couple ran back in and called out to their two teenagers, who uncharacteristically bolted upright immediately, Stauer said.
