These are images captured while volunteering with my Search and Rescue team in Paradise, CA in the days following the Camp Fire. The destruction of the fire and complete decimation of Paradise, Magalia, and Concow was indescribable. I’m proud to have witnessed such incredible strength in people from all over the state of California coming together to try and bring any amount of peace possible to the people in these communities. Herculean efforts were made in the largest SAR effort since 911, and the largest in California state history.
This was not a wildfire, it was a widespread urban wildfire.
