Dead in cars and homes: Northern California fire toll at 29

Dead in cars and homes: Northern California fire toll at 29

Hundreds of people also remain unaccounted for, many in the town of Paradise, which was nearly completely destroyed four days ago.

Additional remains of people killed by northern California wildfire, also known as the Camp Fire, recovered, making it the deadliest wildland blaze in state's history, Sheriff Kory Honea says.

Butte County Sheriff Cory Honea said that 228 people remained unaccounted for since the fire mostly incinerated the foothill town of 27,000 people on Thursday.

Honea said that numerous 228 people still unaccounted for may be in shelters or simply unable to contact the loved ones who reported them missing. However, in cases in which missing people are not found alive, he said relatives may be asked to provide a DNA sample to help authorities identify the remains.

The Woolsey fire has destroyed more than 170 homes and killed two people, putting the total death toll from the wildfires at 31.

Other celebrities have also been affected by the fires including Gerard Butler, Robin Thicke and Neil Young.

Despite earlier news reports that the fire had destroyed the home of Caitlyn Jenner, the transgender advocate, her publicist said it had survived.

The home is on a winding stretch of Mulholland Highway with steep panoramic views, where on Saturday the roadway was littered with rocks, a few large boulders and fallen power lines, some of them still on fire.

MI becomes first Midwest state to legalize recreational marijuana
Sessions was defeated by Democrat Colin Allred , a medical marijuana supporter who has criticized Sessions' anti-pot prejudices. It came as the state was still setting up its medical marijuana system, which voters approved by a wide margin two years ago.

In a post on his official website decrying the impact of climate change, Young said "I have lost my home before to a California wildfire, now another". "One of the things that I saw when I was up there is that there is so much debris in some of these areas that it's very hard to determine whether or not there might be human remains there".

In Southern California, firefighters beat back a new round of winds Sunday and the fire's spread was believed to have been largely stopped, though extremely low humidity and gusty Santa Ana winds were in the forecast through at least Tuesday.

Jerry Brown has declared a state of emergency and is calling on President Trump to make a major disaster declaration in response to the wildfires ravaging the state. The singer said on Instagram that he, his girlfriend and his two kids are "safe and surrounded by friends and family" and were thankful to firefighters. "My animals and LOVE OF MY LIFE made it out safely & that's all that matters right now", she wrote, describing herself as "devastated".

'My house no longer stands but the memories shared with family & friends stand strong.

The third fire, Northern California's Camp fire, is the most destructive in state history and one of the deadliest.

"The President's message attacking California and threatening to withhold aid to the victims of the cataclysmic fires is ill-informed, ill-timed and demeaning to those who are suffering as well as the men and women on the front lines", California Professional Firefighters President Brian K. Rice said, according to CNN. Brown said federal and state governments must do more forest management but that climate change is the greater source of the problem.

Dozens of celebrities, including Kim Kardashian West and Lady Gaga, were forced to flee their Malibu area homes to escape the fires.
