PARADISE, Calif. - The Latest on the anniversary of the wildfire that tore through the town of Paradise (all times local):
Gov. Gavin Newsom has proclaimed the anniversary of the Camp Fire to be "California Resilience Day."
The wildfire a year ago Friday was the most deadly and destructive in California history, killing 85 people and largely destroying the Sierra Nevada foothills town of Paradise.
Newsom says in his declaration that it's a day for California residents to mourn what was lost and rededicate themselves to preparedness, response and recovery.
He says the losses left a hole "that can never be filled."
But he says it's also a time to celebrate the "pioneer spirt" of Paradise residents, their bravery and resilience.
He noted that the devastation came the same time as a deadly wildfire north of Los Angeles and a mass shooting in Thousand Oaks, tragedies he says united Californians in grief.
