California Wildfires

During the Summer of 2008, there were multiple wildfires all throughout Northern California. Missionaries in the Paradise, CA area were temporarily moved because of heavy smoke and dangerous fire conditions. The fires were so large, and so plentiful, that the entire Sacramento Valley was full of smoke. The effects of the fires were felt in full force throughout the California Roseville Mission. Ashes were falling from the sky in many cities, including Chico and Oroville. A thick smoke blanketed the sky from Sacramento to Redding.
