BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - It seems fire survivors have more in common than just property destruction. Most are anxious to see what - if anything remains.
One of those survivors anxiously waiting to see their burned property is Paul Clement.
Action News Now first brought you his story last week. He has lost two homes in the span of two years, one in the Camp Fire and now one to the Bear Fire.
He works at "Batteries Plus Bulbs" in Chico and is staying busy selling batteries, light bulbs, and repairing phones.
Clement says right now- "normal" is to keep working, temporarily live in a trailer, and return to his property as quickly as possible.
"The longer we wait the more difficult it is. I understand that there might be some smoldering going on. When I did see some video of our place. A couple of days after the fire there were still some smoldering going on, within 50 feet of the in-print of our house. That's irrelevant. when you lose something you just need to get up there to set your own emotional healing," Clement said.
Clement admits he has no idea what might remain. He says after the Camp Fire, he was only able to recover some jewelry.
On the heels of two devastating fires, Clement tells Action News Now he is not sure he will remain in California.
