Im not sure if any members of ATS, live in or have friends/family in Paradise California.
But a group of people I have worked on another project with previously, have taken to the skies to map and model the aftermath of The Camp Fire.

By following this link, you will be able to see if your friend or loved ones home is still standing.
Even if you dont know anyone who was affected by the fire, I urge you to take a look at this huge effort that was made possible
by drones.
26.2 sq miles, mapped in high resolution over the course of 2 days.
70,000 pictures and 460 gbs of data later.
An interactive Orthomosiac was made after 24 hours of straight processing time.

To really get an appreciation for the utter disaster that has taken place, take a look at this map.
goto the link and on the top left hit Drone images.

Camp Fire aftermath

edit to add:
While looking over the map you will notice little icons on screen. Selecting those will pull up a video of that particular area, or a picture of it.

I zoomed out and it looks like fires are burning all across the country??

Am I wrong about that?

Those are other fires that have taken place within the past year or so

If you select the "Drone images" tab, you will only see the Paradise Fire.
In there you can zoom to ground level, click on the video tab above some areas, or view the image of that building

No idea why, but I'm unable to navigate your link for some reason, I just had issues trying to post a link in a thread, maybe it's my phone or something.

I have to ask, though, as a Brit, why is it being called a 'camp fire'? In my experience they're usually a pleasant affair, whereas the devastation caused by those fires is catastrophic.

Is the area called Camp or something? Not wanting to derail your thread, just as an outsider I'm genuinely interested.

All the best to those affected and their loved ones,

Really shocking and quite a project.

I dunno if it's just me and my lack of skill but, I can only look at the first "area" that pops up in the link. I can't seem to move around to the left or the right or north or south...

What am I doing wrong?

Every fire gets a name. I think it's usually given by the first team of firefighters that respond?

It's a way of making it clear which fire they are talking about in the event that there are multiple fires in different locations. As far as I know.

Yes, me too.
You can't navigate around.
PG&E have probably hacked the site.

I am sorry although tragic for any loss of life, looking at those images it is not surprising the amount of property damage.

Look carefully at those images notice most of the forest surrounding the communities and the trees are still standing! They are meant to survive fires like this whereas human built structures all burned to the foundations...

Sad, but amazing to the testament of nature.

California has a climate conducive to wildfires and so obviously people living there should be taking precautions with their homes with landscaping as the main way of protection from wild fires.

Although it is not uncommon for wildfires to occur in western states, I'd advise everyone to determine wild fire risks to their property regardless of where they live. I know I could do a lot better with clearing around my property, right now there is a lot of potential fuel in my woods.

This is one of those situations that should be a real eye opener concerning the severity of surviving one of these wild fires. We all need to get serious about it and take the proper precautions, even get proactive in your area by checking with agencies like the forest service.

CalFire apparently gets to name all the fires.
They called it the camp fire, not that a campfire had anything to do with it.
To me it almost sounds like naming it to make it hard to use as a search term.

The fiew was named after Camp Creek Road, the location where the fire started.

That’s right.
Did you also notice no raked leafs?
Although it won’t stop a large fire, but having a gradient to your home will also help slow a fire creeping across the ground.

Hmm I’m not sure.

Are you and Kansas on a mobile device?
I was using it on a desktop.
So not sure how it will work on mobile.

Edit to add: I just tried the link on my iPad and it seems to be working.
I hit the 3 white lines at the top left, then on the drop down, hit drone images.
Took about 30 seconds to load but it worked for me.
The resolution was the craps at first, but after a couple seconds it was crystal clear.

Maybe your accessing it on a phone?
Perhaps that’s the reason??

The fire was first discovered on Camp Lake Road.
Most major Fires are named based on their initial ignition location.

Working this morning Mac! Maybe the internet was wonky for me yesterday.

There is a thread with an interview of a nurse who tells quite a tale of escaping the fire. I used your drone map to sort of follow along his getaway. Really quite interesting and even brought his story to life a little more.
