Catastrophic Northern California fire is finally contained

Irma Corona comforts neighbour Gerryann Wulbern in front of the remains of Wulbern’s home after the two returned for the first time since the Camp Fire in Paradise California

The Camp fire ignited on November 8 and has destroyed almost 19,000 buildings, a lot of them homes, more than the worst eight fires in California's history combined, the agency said, with thousands of people displaced.

It is the most destructive blaze in California's history and the deadliest wildfire in the U.S. in a century.

Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea has warned that the remains of some victims may never be found. They're searching for telltale fragments or bone or anything that looks like a pile of cremated ashes.

Cal Fire, the state's forestry and fire protection agency, revised the death toll from an earlier count of 87.

Sonny Perdue, the US secretary of agriculture, traveled to Paradise, California, on Monday, the town at the epicenter of the blaze.

Steven McKnight, right, and Daniel Hansen saw through large pieces of sheet metal so they can be moved to allow cadaver dogs to search beneath them for signs of human remains at a mobile home park in Paradise, Calif.

At least 85 people have been killed; 249 are still listed as missing.

More than 50,000 were forced to flee the flames, many who have lost their homes and were now living in evacuation shelters and makeshift camps.

"I've heard the climate change argument back and forth", he said.

"No money is too little", said Arthur Dong, one of the organizers of "We Are Together" 2018 California Camp Fire Fund-raising Event, which was held Saturday night in Palo Alto in northern California.

"Everyone here is super committed to helping the folks here", he said.

In Southern California, more residents returned to areas evacuated because of another wildfire as crews repaired power, telephone and gas utilities.

The Camp Fire was the second major blaze to hit California in recent weeks with a fire in the Malibu area near Los Angeles also killing three people. The blaze burned almost 154,000 acres in Northern California.
