BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - The Butte County community honored the 86 people killed by the Camp Fire on Wednesday night.

Community members at Unitarian Universalist Fellowship sang, prayed and shared stories. 

Action News Now spoke with a couple at the vigil that said they do not plan to rebuild in Paradise. 

"I just needed to show up for myself, and bring my wife for this experience with our community," said Bob Hood, Paradise evacuee. "It's good to see people here that I don't know as well as some familiar faces." 

Although they lost their home in the deadly fire, the couple is still thankful for the community and how it has come together. 

"I'm very thankful that all of us that were up there, whether we went to this church, or any other church, or they didn't go to church, that as many of them that got out did get out," said Ruby Hood, Paradise evacuee. 

Donations given during the service went to the North Valley Community Foundation
