On the morning of November 8, 2018 the 27,000 residents of Paradise, California woke to an orange glow in the Eastern sky, but it wasn’t the sun. The worst wildfire in a state known for wildfires was heading West. By sunset, 85 people would be dead and 14,000 homes, about 90%, would be completely destroyed. It was devastation that is hard to comprehend. A year later, with the help of thousands of workers, Paradise is rebuilding. This Old House is there to find out why this happened, what can prevent future disasters, and to help. Kevin O’Connor, Tom Silva, Richard Trethewey, Jenn Nawada, and Mark McCullough meet three of the thousands of families determined to stay in Paradise. And they learn new building techniques that were literally tested under fire.
