It's been one month since the Camp Fire burned through the entire town of Paradise. Since then, nearby businesses like food trucks, printing companies, and breweries have banded together, finding creative ways to contribute on a small-scale.

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.
