Tuesday, 13 Nov, 2018

Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea said that 228 people are still unaccounted for; many of them are probably in shelters, and authorities are working to resolve those cases, he said. The practical challenge, Honea said, is finding the rest of the remains. Two people were killed and the fire had destroyed almost 180 structures. Authorities said they were bringing in cadaver dogs, two portable morgue units from the military and an additional 160 search and rescue personnel to help find human remains.

The Camp Fire, 60 km north of Sacramento, burned down more than 6,700 homes and businesses in the town of Paradise, more structures than any other wildfire recorded in California.

Hundreds of kilometers to the south, at least two people have died in the Woolsey conflagration threatening the wealthy beach community of Malibu, near Los Angeles.

Rockers including Axl Rose and Rod Stewart slammed U.S. President Donald Trump for his response to the latest round of California forest fires.

In Southern California, where the Woolsey Fire began Thursday afternoon in unincorporated Ventura County, SoCal Edison reported that a circuit relayed out of the Chatsworth Substation about two minutes before the blaze broke out.

Los Angeles County Fire Chief Daryl Osby echoed Brown's sentiments, noting how widespread the fire destruction has been across the state.

On the ground, cars caught in the flames have been reduced to scorched metal skeletons, while piles of debris smolder where houses once stood, an occasional brick wall or chimney remaining. Everything is burned up.

"The rate of spread is exponentially more than it used to be", he said.
