California's Ghost Town: Journalist Shared Photos of Deserted Paradise

A YouTube user drove around the devastated Northern California community of Paradise to survey the damage left by the deadliest wildfire in the state’s history, The Daily Mail reports. 

Dan Ryant recorded the footage while driving around Paradise, 90 miles north of Sacramento, on Wednesday. The Camp Fire, which left Paradise a smoldering ruin, killed 56 people and destroyed 125,000 acres.

A few structures, like a local church, some houses, and a cemetery appeared largely intact and were fortunately untouched by the inferno.

But most of what Ryant recorded showed the charred metal skeletons of melted cars, the charcoal-colored branches of what remained of trees, and homes that were either completely leveled or went up in flames altogether.
