Senator Kamala Harris traveled to Butte County on Sunday following the Camp Fire to see the affected areas from the Camp Fire.
While in Paradise, Harris met with firefighters, local officials, and those who had to evacuate the area.
She was also given a briefing on the current response efforts, in addition to continuing concerns from local firefighters and first responders.
Back in August, Harris also went to Middletown to meet with local officials, survivors, and firefighters and first responders.
Here is a statement released by Senator Harris:
“These wildfires claimed precious lives, devastated communities, destroyed thousands of homes, and forced thousands of Californians to evacuate. My heart aches for the families who lost everything, including loved ones. I am incredibly grateful to the firefighters who have been hard at work fighting these fires. The road to recovery for these communities won’t be easy, and we have a responsibility to give them the federal support they desperately need.”
