Paradise Lost

If you haven't been watching the National News, the Camp Fire has destroyed the town of Paradise, California. Paradise is a little town up the hill from Chico, California.

It's destroyed 6700 structures, many of them home and businesses and burned 100,000 acres as of this morning.

This fire was fast and hot. It started Thursday morning up near a town called Magalia around 6:30 am. By 4:00 pm it had burned 18,000 acres and by Friday morning it was up to 70,000 acres.

Nine lives have been lost, five of them on one road as the people tried to escape the fire via the only road out.

At times, people abandoned their vehicles and just got out and ran. It was all they could do. The roads were gridlocked with people fleeing.

A very sad day.
