CHICO, Calif. - The North State came together on Sunday for a Camp Fire vigil at the First Christian Church in Chico on Sunday.

Communities gathered to honor victims, using the mantra "we will rise again." 

"We're going to rise again and be Paradise Strong," said Jody Jones, mayor of Paradise. "We're all in this together and we're drawing strength from each other. Just hug each other and support each other." 

Members of the communities affected listened to songs and sermons that offered messages of resilience, kindness and community. 

" A lot of my extended family is now homeless and it hurts and I needed somewhere to go other than sitting there at home," said a community member at the vigil. "Prayer does work, but sometimes you just need to go somewhere."
