One year ago, California's Butte County was consumed by the 'Camp Fire': the deadliest and most destructive wildfire in the western state's history. Eighty five people lost their lives. It was also the world's most costly natural disaster in 2018. Up to 90 percent of the Paradise municipality was burned to the ground. While most of the survivors there have since left, some have decided to rebuild and bring life back to the community.
