    The “Welcome to Paradise” sign on Clark road is burning. A picture is worth a thousand words.

    The stories that come out of this one are going to be heartbreaking.

    I have a long time co-worker up in Paradise that is about to retire after paying off his place. I hope that he and all the residents of Paradise end up ok on this one.

    I lost two houses in Paradise today...one I was selling was 7 days from closing escrow- I just spent a month and a half and 50 grand remodeling, good for them..: ) Four sets of aunts and uncles, all lost their houses, at least that is what we are being told, won't know anything for sure till we can get eyes on...

    BUT...everybody is out safe on our side, gonna be a lot of elderly folks that may not have been as lucky...thoughts and prayers for all involved...

    I grew up in Paradise, lived in the area since 1986. Glad my parents sold their place off of Pentz earlier this year and moved to Chico. Unfortunately, many friends have lost their homes. Terrible tragedy, something residents have always feared.

    Passed two convoys of fire trucks coming home from hunting heading that way.
