California Wildfires Kill 50 Across State as Blazes Rage On

HeadlineNov 14, 2018

In California, the death toll from the wildfires in Northern and Southern California has reached at least 50, with scores still missing. The Northern California Camp Fire razed the town of Paradise to the ground, blazing through 130,000 acres. Authorities report the fire is 35 percent contained. In Southern California, firefighters are still battling flames from the Woolsey Fire, which killed two people and ripped through homes in Malibu, scorching almost 100,000 acres. Authorities are investigating reports from utilities companies of power line issues that came in just minutes before both the deadly Camp and Woolsey fires started.
