CHICO, Calif. - A San Diego real estate developer has a big heart for some Camp Fire victims. Bob Wilson gave each student and staff member from Paradise High School a thousand dollar check on Tuesday.

That's 2,085 people and adds up to a little more than $1 million. 

Wilson says after he got the idea, he called principal Loren Lighthall who told him money would be best. Lighthall says the school is still standing, but more than 90 percent of the students and staff lost their homes.

There are more than 900 students and 100 staff and faculty at Paradise High School.
