Camp Fire: Paradise Mayor Jody Jones ready to rebuild town

Paradise Mayor Jody Jones loved to cook. She lost her entire set of family recipes when the flames consumed her home in the town that suffered the greatest loss of life and structural damage in California’s deadliest blaze.

”You know, we lived with fire danger all the time here. But I never thought that if it came it would wipe the town out.
We had fires in 2008 and I had a number of friends who lost their homes in that fire. Maybe 50 structures. But this kind of devastation, no one imagined,” Jones told the Mercury News.

Jones in now determined to rebuild the town she calls home.
