PARADISE, Calif. - The Town of Paradise remembered the 85 people killed in the Camp Fire on Nov. 8.

Flags were posted up and down the Skyway to each remember the lives lost in the November 2018 fire.

A morning of music, tears and celebration in Paradise punctuated by a powerful moment of silence.

The town, and thousands from across the county, gathering on Skyway to remember what was lost, but not forgotten.

"We have both anger and sadness during this, but we are on top. We're flying forward" said Jessie Mercer, who put together the Phoenix key tribute.

The tribute, assembled from 18,000 keys that once opened cars, homes and even diaries lost to the fire, also making its grand debut on Nov. 8.

"That courage for the first time in a year, it's so powerful," said Mercer.

A symbol of hope rising from the ashes and working together to heal and build an even better Paradise.

"We are so grateful for the resilience of the people here and all the sides coming together," said Congressman Doug LaMalfa.

"We are all in this together, so however you're feeling about this, just know you're not alone and we are going to move forward together," said Sheriff Kory Honea.

The Town of Paradise also debuted its "Building Resiliency Center". A one-stop-shop for people to apply for rebuild permits and get counseling on how to rebuild in Paradise.

The Building Resiliency Center is located at 6295 Skyway.
