At Least 9 Dead in Fires in Northern California

SAN FRANCISCO – At least nine people have died in wildfires raging in California, officials said on Friday.

In a statement, the Butte County Sheriff’s Office said that four fatalities were confirmed on Friday, adding to the five deaths reported on Thursday.

“BSCO reports an additional four fatalities have been confirmed due to the Camp Fire. All four victims were located in the Paradise area by BCSO detectives,” the statement said.

“One person was found inside a residence and three were found outside of residences,” it added.

The fire, which began on Thursday morning, was five percent contained and had reached 90,000 acres (36,400 hectares) in size, according to CalFire.

Three firefighters have sustained injuries while tackling the blaze, which has destroyed over 6,400 homes and 260 commercial structures.

Heavy traffic caused by the evacuations of 150,000 people led to some abandoning their vehicles to escape on foot.

The smoke from the fire has reached San Francisco, where an air quality alert has been issued.

In its latest report, CalFire said it did not expect the Camp Fire to be fully contained until Nov. 30.
