California Wildfire Update: 42 Dead, 228 Missing, Becomes Deadliest In U.S. History

Northern California’s Camp Fire has become the deadliest wildfire in United States history as the death toll climbs to 42 and 220 missing.

Some bodies were recovered from the Ridewood Mobile Home Park on Monday.

Butte County Sheriff Cory Honea revealed that the remains of 13 additional people were located on Monday.

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

Bodies were recovered in Paradise, California.

– 42 people have died in Northern California’s Camp fire

– 2 people have died in Southern California’s Woolsey fire

– 228 people are still missing

– 7,000 structures have been damaged

– 57,000 structures still remain under threat

– 149,000 people still under evacuation order

– 8,000 firefighters on the front lines.

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.
