PARADISE, Calif. - Some people are living in trailers in Paradise using propane tanks to cook, stay warm and live.

Bill King, a neighbor in the town, said he has been living without power to his trailer for three months. 

The two trailers that he lives on house his pets and the rest of his family. And they go through seven propane tanks each week. 

"The propane's been costing me about $34 a day to provide power to the two RV's that house our animals our son and my wife," he said. 

However, PG&E said that people in the town of Paradise can apply for a permit so they can get temporary power through PG&E. 

Once the person applies, a temporary power pole and service panel must be put in and inspected by the town. 

From there, the utility can restore the power to the customer.
