Camp fire fully contained

Rain helps mostly douse California fire but slows searchers

The Camp Fire's death toll rose to 88, and 203 people were still missing, the Butte County sheriff said on Monday, a day after the deadliest and most destructive blaze in California's history had been fully contained. That fire killed at least three people.

So far, FEMA officials say the USA government has distributed more than $20 million in assistance for people displaced by Butte County's Camp Fire.

Steven McKnight, right, and Daniel Hansen saw through large pieces of sheet metal so they can be moved to allow cadaver dogs to search beneath them for signs of human remains at a mobile home park in Paradise, Calif.

"The remains that we are now recovering are now remains that were nearly completely consumed by the fire", he said.

"#CampFire.is now 100% contained", the state fire authority said on its official Twitter account, noting that it has destroyed 13,972 residences, 528 commercial and 4,293 other buildings.

However, the rain also raises concerns that mudslides and debris flows could be caused in the burn scar areas of Paradise. Ill-informed President was seriously angry and firefighters, and forestry, when accused of appropriate services in a "massive, deadly and costly wildfires" - and threatened to cut payments and those and others.




Rain hit the area last week, helping to contain the fire, but adding to challenges in recovery efforts.

The wet weather helped extinguish hot spots and enabled responders to ramp up the search for additional victims, particularly in Paradise, a retirement community with a population of 27,000. The Butte County Sheriff's Office warned residents to be aware of risks associated to the weather.

Firefighters move debris while recovering human remains from a trailer home destroyed by the Camp Fire in Paradise, California, U.S., November 17, 2018. A lot of them are elderly retirees.

Officials said most of the victims of the fire identified so far have been of retirement age.

In southern California, more residents were allowed to return to areas that were evacuated because of the 151-square-mile Woolsey fire as crews worked to fix power, telephone and gas utilities.
