The "Camp Fire" starting on November 8, 2018 and would end up becoming the deadliest and costliest fire in California history. It burned 153,336 acres and claimed the lives of 85 people. 271 people still remained unaccounted for 3 weeks after the fire was contained. 13,696 homes, 528 commercial buildings, and 4,293 other buildings were destroyed. The cause of the Camp Fire still is not known and remains under investigation.
The city leaders report that over 95% of their town has been destroyed.
Like so many people throughout the country, we are burdened by the overwhelming need of the people of Paradise California. In helping them RETURN, REBUILD and REFRESH, we work to help them to find hope again that the new Paradise will RISE again.
The PARADISE RISE mission is to partner with individuals and groups to mobilize a team of people and resources, partnering with the city leaders in Paradise to help the people of Paradise RETURN to a new Paradise; to help REBUILD the buildings and infrastructure of Paradise, and to help foster hope again as the new Paradise will RISE again from the ashes.
In our recent trip to Paradise, CA while helping families sift through the rubble of their homes lost in the Camp Fire we were introduced to a Vietnam Veteran who's wife shared a story of his heroism in the face of danger.
With the fire quickly approaching their community, this US Army vet went door to door of every trailer in his park to help rescue his disabled, elderly neighbors. Many later reported that there would have been no way for them to escape on their own. He was a true hero.
Pastor Josh Gallagher of Paradise Alliance Church shares his testimony and a significant find while sifting through the rubble of his home lost in the Camp Fire, all with a team of volunteers from Samaritan's Purse.
