The owner of a food truck who lost his livelihood in the Camp Fire is back in business after 72 days out of service.

The Lamb and the Wolf food truck was parked in Paradise when the fire broke out.

It was still standing after the fire but suffered extensive damage.

Owner Michael Athanasopolous said he was able to buy a new truck which now reads "Paradise Strong" on the side.

“It is my business, but you know something after 72 days, I'm back,” Athanasopolous said. “A lot of people are not going to come back. So we have to appreciate for what we have.”

Athanasopolous’ first day back in business was Friday at the food truck park in downtown Redding.

He was so busy, he quickly sold out of some of his most popular items.
