The Camp fire in Butte County burned down more than 15 thousand structures. Evacuation centers are filling up. The town of Paradise suffered a huge portion of the devastation: death and destruction.

To get an update on the situation, KALW's Hana Baba spoke with Marc Albert, a reporter with North State Public Radio in Chico, just 14 miles from Paradise.

You can find the latest reports from Albert here.

Hana Baba is host of Crosscurrents, KALW's weeknight newsmagazine that broadcasts on KALW Public Radio in the San Francisco Bay Area.
