The death toll continues to rise in the worst wildfire disaster in the state’s history, the Camp Fire that tore through the community of Paradise was unforgiving. Officials say there are now 76 known dead and the number of missing has climbed to nearly 1500. In the meantime, the fire continues to burn. By Saturday the fire was still only 62 percent contained. It has already destroyed more than 9,800 homes and burned 149,000 acres.
“We’re all going to work together, and we’ll do a real job, but this is very sad to see,” said President Donald Trump when he visited the fire ravaged area last Saturday afternoon.
