California fire deaths reach 35At least 35 people have been killed and hundreds more remain missing as multiple wildfires continue to burn throughout Northern California.

Two more people were confirmed dead on Friday as the bodies of 89-year-old Dr. George Chaney and a 79-year-old man were recovered from their home in Napa, raising the total number of deaths reported by authorities to 35.

A 4.0-magnitude earthquake also struck near Redwood Valley in Mendocino County, where fires have burned more than 34,000 acres.

"It was a shaker," Ukiah Valley fire Capt. Pete Bushy told the Press Democrat.

Sheriff Rob Giordano said about 235 people remain unaccounted for in the wake of the Sonoma County fires. There have been 1,485 reports of missing people in the county and of those, 1,250 have been located safe.
