That historic bridge, built in 1887, was among the thousands of buildings destroyed in the Camp Fire.

With work underway to restore it, the sheriff's office says the bridge is a fitting symbol of the community's resolve to rebuild after what became the deadliest and most destructive wildfire in the state's history.

Friday will mark one year since the Camp Fire started in Butte County.
