Nine months after the Rim Fire tore through the nearby forest, Kevin Reynolds and Randi Jones decided to live out a dream.
Reynolds: "We kind of wanted to rise from the ashes just to let people know there are still opportunities out there."
The two of them opened an old-fashioned meat market they had envisioned before the fire hit. Instead of being scared by the fire the couple says they were inspired.
Reynolds: The fire really didn’t affect our decision to open a meat market. We knew that there may be some issues but people still need to eat.
