Guy Fieri spent his Thanksgiving back in the Camp fire zone in Butte County, teaming up with fellow celebrity chefs Jose Andres and Tyler Florence to cook for evacuees in Chico.

This was at the least second time the Santa Rosa celebrity chef has been to the fire zone. He surprised first responders at Butte College on Nov. 11.

According to the Associated Press, World Central Kitchen, a nonprofit founded by Andres, prepared 15,000 Thanksgiving meals, teaming up with Chico-based Sierra Nevada Brewing Co., California State University, Chico and the town of Paradise to serve people affected by the fire.

The Redding Record Searchlight posted a video of Fieri cooking up turkeys and sharing a favorite way to cook the bird.

Earlier in the week, Arnold Schwarzenegger served breakfast to fire crews.

The wildfire, which started Nov. 8, has killed at least 84 people and destroyed nearly 19,000 buildings. It is 95 percent contained, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.
