while this is a somber day, a lot of people are also very hopeful, expressing a lot of optimism about the future of paradise as the rebuilding process slowly begins. let me give you an example of the progress made in the community over the past year. here is some video. on the left-hand side of your screen are shots showing what paradise look like shortly after the camp fire swept through in november 2018. devastation everywhere you looked. on the right-hand side of your screen there is chopper video that was taken earlier today. you can see what a difference it makes. all those lots no long covered in debris from the homes that burned. you have lots that have been cleared and a lot of construction happening. this town well on its way in terms of recovery. earlier today there was a groundbreaking ceremony for what is going to become hope plaza. it is a garden park that will
6:03 pm
be built on an old parking lot in the middle of town and it will pay tribute to the victims of the camp fire and the first responders who fought that fire. >> the city and some people involved asked us to come and design a park that would represent what happened here and where the community is going in the future. for me as a designer me and my team feel privileged to do that. at the same time it is going to be one of the most important projects i have. it will be an incredible event for us. the main part about the project was to really respect the people that were a part of the fire and those events a year ago. with a lot of the design we want it to represent and pay homage to all the first responders and all the people that were the heroes. we have a hero plaza and on the other side we wanted a sanctuary.
6:04 pm
we call it the forest sanctuary. you can come in and get outside of all the noise and walk through a water feature. now inside that space you have rushing water. you don't hear the background. you can reflect on love once you lost. people that were lost in the fire and they will be etched onto the actual stainless steel trees that is our forest in the background. all the names of the deceased will be etched on their and they will be located with her family members or friends. we are integrating with the families to make that happen. so they are not just randomly put on their there's reason behind it. >> reporter: hope plaza will be paid for entirely with donations made through a variety of foundations here in butte county and the designers are expecting to have hope plaza open to the public one year from now. a lot of other tributes to the people who lost their life in the camp fire one year ago.

6:07 pm
>> reporter: in a conversation i had with the mayor here in paradise that is one of the big takeaways that she and other emergency officials have from the camp fire. it is trying to get those evacuation warnings out earlier. obviously the camp fire behaved in a way that firefighters have not seen another fire behaved. it was here in town before they even really knew what hit them. in a lot of ways there wasn't a whole lot they could do. but there is a lot of talk about having redundancies built into the emergency alert system. what happened here in paradise is early on those cell phone towers went down. they were destroyed i the fire and all of a sudden there was no way to warn people about this inferno that was closing in on the town. the mayor wants to build some redundancies into the system. she's also talking about potentially putting some sirens in town to give people enough warning in case there is a fire in the future. >> thank you so much.

6:31 pm
firefighters and first responders are looking back on what was a harrowing day for them. i had a chance to talk to one of the first firefighters to respond to the camp fire. this started off as a small brush fire several miles outside of town but given the strong winds they had that day this fire was quickly spotting in the town of paradise and it quickly overwhelmed fire crews. >> the amber past was starting fires and they were becoming hundreds of acres very quickly. once they got a receptive you'll bed they spread exponentially. so we are getting new spot fires that are creating their own fir of a perfect storm that overwhelmed us. it did overwhelm us. and you don't want to play monday morning quarterback but i don't know what could have absolutely been done unless there was a fire engine sitting
6:32 pm
where the fire started at that exact moment to suppress the fire. >> reporter: why was it so challenging to get everyone out of the town of paradise? >> there are four main thoroughfares that come from the valley. and all of them when the town got told to evacuate, all of them were impacted. you are talking not only people in paradise but up above and trying to get out. the amount of people, human nature, i am comfortable driving through that stuff. but you or the public sees fire or smoke and the human hesitation for the human nature might be to stop. well if you stop, everyone behind you will stop. i'm not blaming those people because it was a harrowing situation. but you have to take that into consideration also. it worked well on the standpoint that we got close to 30,000 people off there, 30-
6:33 pm
50,000 people evacuated. it could have been absolutely a disaster of monumental proportions if it happened on a sunday morning at 3 am. and thankfully if we could find a silver lining it happened at 6:30 am on a thursday, parents are getting their kids ready to go to school and go to work so everyone is up. people were somewhat cognizant seeing smoke in the air or sing with their neighbors are doing and able to turn the radio on or turn the tv on or get text messages of some capacity. my biggest fear was if it happened early in the a.m. on a weekend when traditionally people sleep in and everyone is their day, i think it could have been oh, geez,lutely horri life. >> reporter: what are the biggest takeaways from the camp fire? >> we have the resources.
6:34 pm
but we went in to rescue instead of what we traditionally like to do. we want to protect property. i think that was the biggest challenge for us is that, not that we didn't want to save lives but while we are saving lives and doing good, we are losing property. so, that is probably the biggest challenge is trying to get communities and people aware and being able to leave when asked to leave. >> reporter: as this fire just swept through the town of paradise with little to no warning at all, thousands of people had to suddenly evacuate and as you heard the cal fire captain talk about there were only a few evacuation routes to get out of town and those roads were clogged. there were flames on both sides and it was an absolutely frightening day for so many people who were trying to
6:35 pm
escape the camp fire. we had a chance to talk earlier today with a survivor of the fire returned to paradise today on the anniversary. >> it has changed everybody. people barely got out with their lives appear. and they don't understand, people don't understand how horrific that fire was and how scary it was. it changed people. it changed this town. people aren't the same. there is nothing here anymore. it is a big ball of ash up here. why be here? so, i here because of the anniversary. >> reporter: there are certainly a fare number of people who in all likelihood were forced to leave paradise, lost their homes and may not return. by the same token there are a whole lot of people and i talked to many of them today and tonight here at this commemoration ceremony in paradise, a whole lot of people
