Death toll in California's Camp Fire now 48

The fire that killed at least 48 people and devastated the Northern California town of Paradise was a "direct and legal result of the negligence, carelessness, recklessness, and/or unlawfulness" of PG&E, the lawsuit said.

The intensified effort to locate victims came on the sixth day of a blaze that incinerated over 7,000 homes and other buildings, including most of Paradise, a town once home to 27,000 people.

Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea's office has identified four of the victims and publicly named three. They include 13 coroner search recovery teams, 150 search and rescue personnel, cadaver dogs, two portable temporary morgue units, and a rapid DNA system.

More than 200 people were still missing as of Monday, Honea said.

More than 50,000 area residents remained under evacuation orders.

Red Flag Warnings, the highest level fire alert, were issued by the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (Cal Fire) across the entire state stretching from the northern border with OR and the southern border with Mexico.

Miley Cyrus lost her Malibu home, and tweeted that she was "devastated by the fires".

As for what caused the two deadly fires, that remains under investigation. "It's something I absolutely had to do", said Colusa Police Sgt. Jarrod Hughes, who lost his Paradise home.

The late-night host explained, "The federal government manages most of the forest land in California, not the state, [Trump's] the one who cut the funding, California actually pays more money to the federal government than it gets back, and of course he does nothing about climate change, which is why these fires happen". "It is not a new start", said Ziegler. Medical records of bone fractures, prosthetics or implants can also be helpful.

ASSOCIATED PRESS Search and rescue workers search for human remains at a trailer park burned in the Camp fire on November 13, 2018, in Paradise, California.

At the other end of the state Tuesday, firefighters continued making progress against a 150-square-mile (388-square-kilometer) blaze that has killed two people in star-studded Malibu and destroyed well over 400 structures in Southern California. Still, firefighters made gains.

The Woolsey Fire burned 96,314 acres and was 35 percent contained, Cal Fire said in a report Tuesday.

"We're getting the upper hand here".

Police said 100 National Guard troops were being sent to assist the search for additional human remains left by the so-called Camp Fire in the north of the state.

"We are not out of the woods yet", Ventura County Fire Chief Mark Lorenzen said.
