Brian Andrews of Paradise covered his chimney with Christmas decorations, even after the campfire had destroyed the rest of his home.
In the middle of the destruction stands his chimney, which he adorned from a nearby shop with holiday accessories.
He hung stockings over the fireplace. In his front yard is a sign saying "You will not forget".
Andrews & # 39; reason was simple. He said it was a demonstration of strength needed now more than ever.
"My number one after the fire, you know, my God, what's going to happen to my city, I mean, how is it going to be rebuilt, will people just want to leave, and I immediately thought we had to stay motivated "Andrews said.
Andrews plans to stay in paradise and rebuild his home.
He sees everyone on the ridge as his neighbors, and he hopes his portrayal will inspire others not to lose faith in the city of Paradise. 19659010]
