Deadly NorCal Wildfire Kills At Least 63; 631 Reported Missing

HeadlineNov 16, 2018

The death toll from the Northern California Camp Fire has risen to at least 63, and authorities are now saying 631 people are missing—double the previous count. The wildfire has grown to 141,000 acres and destroyed a total of nearly 12,000 structures, including almost 10,000 homes, mostly in the decimated town of Paradise. Evacuated residents now face the challenge of finding shelter, as hundreds have taken to camping out in a Walmart parking lot. The Camp Fire was 40 percent contained by Thursday. Meanwhile, the Woolsey Fire in the Los Angeles area is now over 60 percent contained.
