Evacuee Roxanne Peters had planned to prepare food tomorrow, for Thanksgiving dinner.
"I was celebrating at two different houses. We were invited to two different places, and I was cooking, you know, potluck," she said.
Both those homes burned to the ground in the historic Camp Fire. The scale of the fire's destruction is so spread out that very little of the towns of Paradise, Magalia and Concow remain. So far, the fire scorched 230 square miles — an area the size of Chicago.
"I'll be giving thanks this year that we made it out alive," Peters says.
