PARADISE, CA (3TV/CBS 5) - Nearly a month after an inferno ravaged through the town of Paradise, California, APS crews from Arizona are among those trying to return the area to a semblance of normalcy.
"It's a brotherhood when talking about events like this," said Robbie Houle, an APS supervisor.
Houle and 19 of his workers have been on the scene since the day before Thanksgiving.
They have worked 12 hour days, 12 days in a row, faced with endless destruction.
"We're rebuilding from the ground up," Houle said.
The absence of power has left the area virtually unlivable.
Currently, water pumps, sewer pumps and power plants are all non-operational.
APS crews will be in California for another two weeks.
