PARADISE, Calif.- A local church is helping Camp Fire survivors stay warm this winter season.

The Paradise Alliance Church joined forces with Tri-Flame Propane, and District Church from El Dorado Hills.

More than 30 volunteers helped distribute around 2,500 gallons of propane to hundreds of Camp Fire survivors on the ridge.

Paradise Alliance Church's Disaster Director, Steve Bolin says, "Winter is a tough time when you're living in a trailer, it's cold, it's damp, there's a lot of different problems, and people are going through propane tanks like crazy. We wanted to do something to help people out."

Camp Fire survivor, Don Clark says, "I've been waiting a week for this, without propane I don't have any heat, this is the kind of thing that helps people in Paradise get by."

They also distributed around 200 tarps, ropes and rubber mats.

More than 300 survivors came out to Saturday's event.

Sunny skies and warmer temperatures are on the way for your Sunday. We'll be mostly sunny and just about as warm on Monday. A modest cooling trend and the chance for Sierra showers is ahead for Tuesday.
