CNN posted a video of a man and woman driving through what looks to be a wall of fire in Paradise, California. With the fire finally calming down, dangers of the recent rains can cause flooding and mudslides. The camp fire destroyed over 10,000 homes, leaving families homeless with nearly 1,000 people still unaccounted for (CNN). While the fire in Calabasas is ninety-nine percent contained, people look to President Trump for guidance. President Trump is continuing to support the statement that forest management, not climate change, is to blame for this tragedy. The fire is still burning, burning since November eighth and experts say it is only half way done. The Butte county police are beginning the process of searching for missing persons. Officials state that the fire burnt so hot that there is a possibility that some remains may never be located (CNN).
Additionally, the police are untrained in finding human remains, so it can easily take weeks to properly identify remains found. The Paradise fire is the deadliest on record in California and death tolls have yet to be verified. Some 130 miles away, cities like San Francisco are being affected with residents forced to wear masks due to all the smoke pollution in the air. Overall, the deadly campfire has forced everyday citizens to rethink their choices about things such as campfires.
