Last November, the deadliest and most destructive wildfire in California history scorched over 150,000 acres in Butte County and killed 85 people. The Camp Fire burned almost the entire town of Paradise, displacing thousands of its residents, contaminating its drinking water and leaving millions of tons of toxic debris behind. But six months later, the community is beginning to rebuild. We'll reflect on the tragedy and talk about the progress made so far.

Guests:

Randall Stone, mayor, City of Chico
