    @fishdog can probably confirm that’s about an hour drive west of the fire.

    I don't know Bob but do know Mike, wishing the best for both of them and anyone else not mentioned in this post.
    I know people on this forum are willing to help at the drop of a hat if need be
    just say the word.
    Hang in there and prayers sent to everyone involved.
    Stay safe first responders. :tu

    The Fire has reached Paradise. Lower sections of the town are burning. Clark road and the Skyway areas. Moving south east towards Chico. They’ve got some tankers in the air now. Pulling out all the stops with resources racing to the scene. People fleeing.

    Born and raised up in Paradise. I no longer live there but lots of friends still do. This is bad, real bad.
