Northern California officials fear record wildfire death toll could rise

Northern California officials fear record wildfire death toll could riseThe deadly Camp Fire also ranked as California’s most destructive ever in terms of property losses, having incinerated more than 6,700 homes and other buildings in the Sierra foothills of Butte County, about 175 miles (280 km) north of San Francisco. Most of the devastation and loss of life was in and around the town of Paradise, where flames reduced most of the buildings to ash and charred rubble on Thursday night, just hours after the blaze erupted. At least 29 fatalities have been confirmed so far, a tally that ranks as the most ever from a single northern California wildfire – surpassing the 25 lives lost in the 1991 Oakland Hills firestorm – and ties the all-time statewide record set in 1933 by the Griffith Park blaze in Los Angeles.
