BRAWLEY, CA (13 On Your Side) – Recent structural fires are causing concern in the small community of Brawley and has business owners on high alert.

"We are one of the busiest pharmacies in town. We take care of a lot of patients here," says head pharmacist at White Cross Pharmacy, Sameer Rakholia, "so if we were to shut down, that would mean a lot of patients would be without their medication. That would be a big problem for us."
