PARADISE, Calif. - The Town of Paradise is under an evacuation warning due to the North Complex fire and some residents say they are prepared to stay back and fight the fires. While others are very emotional with the thought of potentially losing everything again.

“It’s a difficult time," said Raylene Robinson. "It didn’t use to be difficult. You know there are a lot of challenges and not only for us humans and community members but also for our pets.”

After losing everything once, Robinson said that she brings her dog everywhere with her now. 

“One of the challenges that I face is that most places that I go, I have to take my dog because he is traumatized and he gets extremely anxious when he smells the smoke and so it is really sad for the time that we are having right now and so I am thankful that I get to bring him and he gets to tail around for the ride,” said Robinson. 

While Robinson is staying prepared by bringing her dog everywhere with her, others are preparing to not evacuate. 

“We’re not going to," said one Paradise resident. "We’re going to fight. I am not going to lose everything again.”

She shared how she and her husband plan to fight the fire if necessary. 

“So we got two sprinklers on top of everything that matters to us and if it gets worse, I pack up the kids and I go and he stays behind," said one Paradise resident. 

The town of Paradise issued an evacuation warning on Sunday. The warning remains in place as of Tuesday.

Tuesday was another sunny and unseasonably warm to hot day for much of northern California. It was much like Monday, except the wind was stronger, and the wind will be much stronger through much of the next week.
