Search for more wildfire victims continues in Northern California

9 month ago

The death toll continues to rise in Northern California's wildfires to reach 29, after officials released another sad update: six more dead in a swath. Another 228 people remain missing as crews step up the searches for bodies.

Authorities teams of anthropologists and DNA teams to help identify the victims. Gov. Jerry Brown said at a press conference: "This is truly a tragedy that all Californians can understand and respond to. It's time to pull together and work through these tragedies."

The destruction and growth of fire are believed to have been largely stopped, as the firefighters were encountering new winds in Southern California. In Malibu, two other people were killed and about 180 structures reduced to ashes.
