It has been a year since what is now known as the Camp Fire destroyed approximately 90% of the northern California town of Paradise and killed 85 people. The fire that started on November 8, 2018, and burned down more than 14,000 homes was one of the worst wildfires in the past 100 years in the United States. Some survivors still do not want to return. VOA's Elizabeth Lee spoke to a couple of longtime residents to ask them why.
