MONTECITO, Calif. - A California community came together Wednesday night one year after a massive mudslide hit Montecito.

A candlelight vigil was held to honor the 21 people who lost their lives last year.

The mudslide happened after more than five inches of rain fell over what was considered the burn scar from the Thomas Fire

There were 100 homes destroyed and crews performed dozens of rescues

Cleanup efforts continue throughout the area and businesses are beginning to make a comeback. Survivors are still hopeful for the future.
