US: California wildfires claim 42 lives; deadliest in US history

 

AMN

The fire that ravaged the wooded town of Paradise has become the deadliest wildfire in California state’s history. It has claimed 42 lives till Monday.

The dead have been found in burned-out cars, in the smouldering ruins of their homes, or next to their vehicles, apparently overcome by smoke and flames before they could jump in behind the wheel and escape.

The Butte County sheriff, Kory L. Honea said more than 200 people remain missing in and around the town. It has razed a staggering 6,453 homes.

A 1933 blaze in Griffith Park in Los Angeles killed 29 people, and a series of wildfires in Northern California’s wine country last fall killed 44 people.
