More than 1,000 missing in CA firesAuthorities in Northern California said late Friday that eight more victims of the state’s deadliest fire on record have been found, bringing the death toll to 71 since it erupted more than a week ago.

At least 1,011 people have now been reported missing in Butte County, up from 631 earlier this week. Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea said the list of missing residents is “dynamic,” however, and that it may contain duplicate names as reports continue to come in to the emergency services.

As of Friday night, the Camp Fire was only 50 percent contained after swallowing up more than 9,000 homes, wiping out the entire town of Paradise, and scorching 146,000 acres.
