As of Saturday, NBC reports that the fire is the deadliest in the United States in a century, with a confirmed death toll of 71. Honea said three sets of remains were found Thursday in Paradise, three in Magalia and one in Concow. The Camp Fire has been raging for over a week across northern California, razing over 142,000 acres and laying waste the town of Paradise and its environs. "The explosions and the screams will never be a sound that I can forget".

Rescuers with sniffer dogs have been going house to house searching for people, while authorities collect DNA from relatives of the missing. He noted "there are areas you can't even get to them yet" and the sheer number of people unaccounted for.

Around a quarter of a million people had to leave their homes, with many documenting risky escapes from the flames on social media.

The number of people missing in a devastating wildfire in northern California jumped to more than 1,000 on Friday, authorities said, as the remains of eight other victims were found by rescuers.

"I think by maybe seeing it he's going to be like 'Oh my goodness, ' and it might start opening people's eyes", she said. "We're still reviewing emails", Honea said. "It should have been done many years ago", he said, before saying that "everybody's on the right side". "I don't know what to do anymore".
