Butte County Wildfires Burn More Than 148,000 Acres, Destroy Almost 12,000 Structures, Leave Countless Injured and Homeless
Firefighters continue to battle the massive fire in Butte County, California that completely overtook Paradise, leaving countless injured and homeless. Almost 12,000 are confirmed destroyed (including homes). Over 71 fatalities are now confirmed and over 1,000 remain missing with the fire at 55 percent containment. Nearby communities remain in danger.
The entire town, about 1.5 hours north of Sacramento, has evacuated to shelters, forced to leave without any warning and with their homes totally exposed. Nevertheless, the community of Paradise seems set on rebuilding and restoring itself, according to sentiments expressed by local residents interviewed by news reporters.
For those who have lost more than personal property, the times ahead will be even more difficult. Multitudes remain hospitalized a week after the deadly Paradise wildfire evacuation occurred. Hospitals are reporting that most burn patients have experienced ratios of between 20 to 50 percent of their bodies. Burn victims will experience additional financial hard ship and pain and suffering. In the years to come, families who have lost members or who have experienced burn injuries will face extreme difficulty re-establishing in Paradise or elsewhere.
