On November 8, 2018, a fire broke out in the early morning hours just outside Paradise home to many retirees. The cause of it is still under investigation.  The town of Paradise was engulfed in black smoke from the fire and 30,000 residents were quickly evacuated. In one day this fire consumed 20,000 acres with over 15,000 structures still threatened. The fire is traveling quickly and is now within 2 miles of Chicago. The Camp Fire was so named because of its proximity to Camp Creek Road near Highway 70 in the Feather River Canyon.
