After Paradise: Week 10


Tonight on After Paradise - It’s been 10 weeks since the Camp Fire started. PG&E faces staggering legal costs. California’s largest utility now seeking bankruptcy protection. We explore what it means for Camp Fire survivor and ratepayers.


We also check in with State Assemblyman James Gallagher about the utility and the legislator’s response. For decades home prices in Butte County have been more down to earth than much of California, but with thousands of homes wiped off the map, Chico is now one of the nation’s hottest housing markets. The deadliest and costliest wildfire in California history also took a deep toll on Butte County’s sense of place, some of the community are vowing to replace what they can.


We want to hear from YOU. As a community we have never had to navigate a process like this, so we’re turning to you to learn what information you and others need to know most. Ask YOUR questions in our new online form.

For Thursday, January, 17th, 2019… this is “After Paradise.”
