Two years ago, on Nov. 8, 2018, the Camp Fire set blaze when a faulty electric transmission line sparked just outside Paradise. 

More than 13,000 homes were destroyed, 85 lives were lost, and 27,000 people struggled to escape with their lives. 

Alastair Gee And Dani Anguiano, journalists for The Guardian, investigated the most destructive American wildfire in a century in their book, "Fire in Paradise: An American Tragedy."
