A documentary about the Camp Fire at Paradise, California

Screen grab from the Camp Fire Documentary

There will probably be numerous documentaries released about the Camp Fire that erased much of Paradise, California as it killed at least 86 people and destroyed over 14,000 homes. Below is one of the first.

The fire will be an important part of California history, but it remains to be seen if it will be eclipsed in the next few years by even more unimaginable and disastrous fires as the climate becomes warmer and more prone to extreme events.

The film below, produced by Paradise-area film maker Golden Eagle Films, contains many interviews with residents that survived the inferno.

  1. What a wonderful documentary of the Camp Fire; it gave a much clearer look into what it must have been like to be there, told of the terror and hopelessness the residents must have felt. My heart goes out to the residents who lost loved ones and homes and pets. It’s hard to visualize a fire spreading so fast. My parents lived in Magalia in the 80’s and it was such a peaceful, serene area with a nice slow pace of living. Thank you to the heroes who saved so many people, especially the elderly. I’m sure there is a special place in Heaven for these angels who so unselfishly risked their lives to save others in that awful, awful inferno. Thanks to you for the documentary.
