As the Camp Fire has become fully contained and the death count slows, the full cost of the fire is now coming into focus. So Far, FEMA says they have paid out more than $20 million in aid for those displaced by the fire. Nearly 14,00 homes were destroyed, over 80 are dead, and over 200 are still missing. US Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke was back in Paradise yesterday, and said the costs associated with the fire will likely be in the Billions of dollars, and that building restrictions in fire prone areas should be part of the discussion moving forward about wildfire protections. He says he’s never witnessed such devastation.
