PARADISE, Calif. - Today marks one year since the devastating Camp Fire changed thousands of lives forever.

It claimed 85 lives and burned through homes, schools, and businesses. As it consumed more than 153,000 acres.

An exceptional morning of remembrance in paradise. Hundreds of people across the area gathered on the Skyway to remember what was lost but will never be forgotten.

The morning started off with a preview of the town's new building resiliency center, located at 6295 skyway.

The center will be a one-stop destination for people rebuilding to get information about grants, housing and guidance.

Once the clock hit 11:08 a.m., we saw the town observe 85 seconds of silence, one second for each person killed in the Camp Fire.

A very somber moment with people in the crowd wiping away some tears, remembering the lives lost.

We then heard from artist Jessie Mercer who designed the highly anticipated phoenix key project which incorporates keys from people across town into the form of a phoenix.

Action News Now will have more on the commemoration this evening.
