PARADISE — In the aftermath of the most destructive wildfire in California’s recorded history, the small city of Chico has become a refuge for thousands of people who had to evacuate. It’s a challenge for the city, but officials say the communities will move forward together.
PARADISE — For nearly 80 years, Paradise Elementary School occupied a plot on Pearson Road. Students could walk to Paradise Intermediate, the local middle school, and the Golden Nugget Museum, where they went on field trips. But on Nov. 8, the Camp Fire reduced Paradise Elementary to rubble.
