The Latest: Zinke, Perdue Visit Paradise

U.S. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke is back in Butte County to tour wildfire damage and says fire recovery costs will likely be in the billions. He said he’d rather spend that money on other public services, such as improving visitor experiences at Yosemite National Park or building more boat ramps on public lands Zinke said he’s been astonished by the devastation caused by the Camp Fire. U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue joined Zinke in visiting the town of Paradise, which was incinerated. He suggested donating timber from the Plumas National Forest nearby to re-build Paradise.
