Butte Fire Remembered

September 01, 2016  •  16 Comments

As a tribute and remembrence of the horrific events from Sep. 2015 in Amador and Calaveras Counties. 

The Butte Fire

Warning: This photo essay shows images that may be disturbing to some. It is meant as a tribute and hopefully will not cause more pain to those affected. Please do not continue if you feel it may not be appropriate for you. This is a photo journey of my nine days that changed my life forever covering the Butte Fire with my camera. A lot of what transpired during the nine days I was behind the fire lines has become blurred and runs together. If the images are not in order I apologize. 

Day 1

Sep. 9, 2015 



Day 2-9


God Bless the men and women that came to help us, to those that endured and suffered and to all that helped and are continuing to help in the recovery.

This is a beautiful compilation of photographs. I think it represents the reality of what we all went through very well. It seems like it all happened yesterday. Thank you for capturing the beauty and the anguish of the Butte fire.
Thank you for you wonderful pictures you share with us. I have seen many shots of my neighborhood during and after fire. It was a terrifying event to go through but we survived and it's put my life in perspective. I find I have grown and changed my mind set. I use to work every chance I had but now I'm spending time with my family and took my 1st real vacation in 15 years away from the area. You have inspired me to look outside my box and explore the world! Thank you ❤️
Stunning work, John! Sad to see all the loss,still ongoing for so many. Thank you, firefighters!
