Disasters Untold: Camp Fire - Part 2

December 13, 2021

This episode is the second in a two-part series that looks back at the November 2018 Camp Fire that destroyed the small California town of Paradise and neighboring communities in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. The wildfire, which took 85 lives, was the deadliest in California history. Part two of the series features residents who escaped the flames and those who helped community members recover.

  • American Red Cross Gold Country Region Shelter Lead Robin Brinson (from Sacramento) helped open and run the largest shelter for Camp Fire evacuees at the Butte County Fairgrounds in Gridley, Calif.
  • Chip Flores, Bonnie Flores and Klyda Flanders turned to the Red Cross for help after escaping the Camp Fire. Sadly, the historic wildfire destroyed their Paradise, Calif. Homes and neighborhoods.
