PARADISE, Calif. - Businesses are reopening on the ridge after the Camp Fire, but one business that just celebrated its grand opening is a newcomer. 

Cheri Sanders evacuated from Mountain Ranch during the Butte Fire five years ago. She told Action News Now that she closed her businesses after 15 years because the fire drove away most of the population. But she planned to reopen her business in Paradise right before the Camp Fire broke out. 

Her business, Mountain Candles and Home Decor, sold homemade candles, statues, trinkets and more. 

Sanders' sister moved to Paradise and she said she felt like home. 

Her potential new building for business as destroyed in the Camp Fire, but she said she still wanted to come to the ridge and share her passion for candle making. 

Mountain Candles and Home Decor is now located at 6455 Skyway, Paradise, where Debbie's Quilt Shop used to be. The quilt shop is now next door. 

The store will be open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
