The Camp Fire — the deadliest and most destructive blaze in modern California history — destroyed nearly 14,000 homes in Butte County, primarily in and around Paradise.
But businesses large and small were also destroyed. One day before the one-month anniversary of the fire's ignition, more than 2,000 people have filed unemployment claims in the fire zone.
HollieAnne Vrbeta and her husband, Michael, are two of them. They lost their home in the fire, and their jobs as well.
"Everything is just so uncertain," HollieAnne said. "It kind of makes me nervous that I don't know anything at all. Any plan at all for the future."
HollieAnne worked as a nurse at the Feather River Hospital. Paradise's only hospital was badly damaged in the Camp Fire and won't reopen until 2020.
"The hospital has given us a little bit of severance pay, but we're essentially all looking for new jobs," HollieAnne said.
"Right now if you're not going anywhere or if you're not wanting to leave the area, there's a huge surplus of nurses now looking for jobs at just two little hospitals [in Butte County]. So I don't know. It's going to be an interesting application process."
