In 2018, California had the worst fire, destroying the town of Paradise. There were 85 people killed. Close to 1,400 homes and businesses burnt to the ground. This would be 90% of the town, of Paradise burnt.
Attempting to escape the fire, on the narrow Skyway Road, the only road out of town, were a family of four. a retired doctor and his wife, a secretary, a pregnant woman, her toddler son and two bank robbers, in a large SUV. Fire everywhere, heavy forests, dry trees and brush from no rain. Winds up to 70 mph. A perfect recipe for destruction of lives, homes and business.
The fire was caused by corporate greed. A hundred-year-old transmission line with poor maintenance. Climate change ignorance and fire prevention steps by everyone.
The residents learned a lot about surviving. You are responsible for survival of yourself. You!
