CHICO, Calif. - Residents of the area affected by the Camp Fire gathered at a Chico church Sunday to hold a vigil in honor of the destruction and deaths that the fire has caused.

Reporter Laura Eng was at the vigil at the First Christian Church on E. Washington Avenue in Chico. She shared a little bit about a conversation she had earlier in the afternoon with Paradise Mayor Jody Jones. The mayor told her this has been a very trying time, but that she is doing her best to stay strong for the Paradise community.

Lots of ridge residents were at the vigil, many who have lost homes or loved ones, or who are praying for those who are still reporting as missing. Butte Creek Canyon was hit hard, as well as other small communities in the Feather River Canyon. The community of Concow had many losses and deaths. Other small communities in the Feather River Canyon were also hit hard.

Many Chico residents also came to the vigil to honor all of their neighbors in Butte County that have suffered so much from this fire and its devastation.
