BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - Butte County's Sheriff Kory Honea spoke with anchor Debbie Cobb about what his department learned after the Camp Fire and what he remembers of that first day and the days following.

"I have certain memories of that day but I think clearly just trying to get as many people out of Paradise as possible will always stick with me," said Sheriff Honea.

He discussed what went wrong and what went right during the evacuation on Nov. 8.

The Sheriff says they have learned from the Camp Fire and have worked to increase the abilities of warning people of a threat.

Sheriff Honea says he believes he can do his best in Butte County and will continue being the sheriff for as long as the community will have him.

Windy with high fire danger today. Winds calm down tomorrow with mild temperatures and sunny skies all week. By next we cool down and even have the chance for rain.
