It’s been five months since the Camp Fire destroyed Paradise and parts of Butte County. While many are still scarred emotionally one Concow woman will deal with physical scars for the rest of her life. Terra Hill suffered second and third-degree burns all over her body. She spends most days trying to mask her wounds. “We have to change all of that twice a day,” she said. But no amount of gauze can help her ease the pain. “This isn’t me. I look in the mirror and I don’t see me,” Hill told FOX40. “There’s somebody there but it’s not me.” Five months after the Camp Fire, Hill is just now getting out of a rehabilitation center. “My day to day life is just consumed with pain and taking medications,” she said. The morning of Nov. 8, blistering heat shook Hill awake. “I peeked out the blinds and there was fire right there,” Hill said.
