      City of Paradise California is gone

      Fire has wiped out the city of Paradise California (Camp Fire). Thousands of structures involved. I posted some in chit chat.

      a story on the news. Women barely escapes from fire with her child. Took 5 hours to get out of Paradise. When she was safe. She got a call from an ambulance driver. The driver said that his ambulance caught on fire with a patient. They broke into her house and their lives were saved.

      I am sure there are many more stories to come like this one.

      70,000 acres in 24 hours.

      It's heartbroken to see all these.. Can't imagine what is like to run for your life as the fire coming... Hopefully weather cooperates and we will be able to put the fire out ..

      It is now the most destructive fire in California history. Approx 6500 homes lost.

      Aaron Rogers donated $1,000,000 to the victims. A town called Danville that I work in alot also donated over $62,000 on gift cards etc.. pretty cool to help people out in need.

      We finally got rain but now they are concerned about mudslides.
