The “Camp Fire” started last Thursday and continues to devastate the city of Paradise and has taken 31 lives thus far and destroyed around 6,700 structures.  The most ever recorded in California both lives lost and structures destroyed.  There are still over 200 people not accounted for at this time as crews continue to search for people.  Unfortunately any help from mother nature appears to be out of the question as high pressure builds over California with no chance for precipitation in sight over the next few days.  Although no precipitation is present, winds have calmed down to variable over most of the area which should help the fire from spreading out of control and into other areas nearby.
