Deadly fires continue to burn through California


Deadly wildfires on the west coast are continuing to burn their way through California and firefighters are finding more bodies.

The Camp and the Woolsey Fires have left dozens dead and thousands more without a home.

Now California is bracing for stronger winds, which would make this situation even more devastating. These fires are now responsible for the deaths of 44 people.

On Monday, the remains of 13 bodies were found in Northern California after the Camp Fire swept through the region.

The Camp Fire is responsible for 42 of these 44 deaths and has incinerated the entire norther California town of Paradise.

The Butte County Sheriff  told reporters Monday the Camp Fire is deadliest wildfire in the state’s history.

The Camp Fire, began last Thursday and has charred 117,000 acres, destroying 7,000 structures. Cal Fire says it might not be contained until the end of the month.

Hundreds of residents are still missing, and the smoke is so bad, NASA is saying you can see it from space.
