Honea said 10 human remains were located in Paradise. Seven of those were found in homes and three outside.

The remains of some of the Camp Fire victims were found in burned-out vehicles (pictured) that were overrun by walls of fire as evacuees tried to flee by car in panic, only to be trapped in deadly knots of traffic gridlock.
Journeys that should have taken minutes ended up taking hours, with dozens of survivors telling how they jumped out of the cars and ran, carrying whatever they could.
