The wildfires in Northern California have been the most catastrophic in the state’s history. Reports show that the remains of at least 77 people have been found. While the number of bodies continue to rise, the number of missing people has started to drop. At first, there were more than 1,200 people unaccounted for. The number now rests at 993.
Officials say the fire is now 65% contained. And with the possibility of rain this week, it may help contain the fire even more. There have been more than 247,000 acres destroyed across California, forcing entire neighborhoods to flee to safety.
More than 272, 000 have had to leave behind their homes.
