Northern California's Deadly Camp Fire Is 100% Contained

The Camp fire burned for two weeks and proved to be the deadliest wildfire in California's history

PolitiFact said that Trump's November 10 statement that "there is no reason for these massive, deadly and costly forest fires in California except that forest management is so poor" was "overly simplistic and false".

The precipitation temporarily stopped some search crews Friday who were scouring burned-down areas for remains. At least 249 people remain missing, down from more than 1,000 days earlier, the Butte County Sheriff's Office said. He released the names of 16 people who died in the blaze, ranging in age from 58 to 95. While more than 200 people were still unaccounted for, 2,689 people previously listed as missing had been located.

In a joint bulletin posted on Saturday, the police and fire service said evacuation orders that had in place for some areas over the last fortnight were being lifted for both residents and non-residents, while warning that essential services were still "very limited".

Rains over the last three days helped the firefighters contain the blaze, but they were destructive to homes that have been scorched, and may pose a danger to residents that return home.

FEMA spokesman Frank Mansell told The Associated Press that $15.5 million has been spent on housing assistance, including vouchers for hotel rooms.

FEMA also has distributed $5 million to help with other needs, including funeral expenses, he said. Almost 14,000 homes have been destroyed.

The donations from the Chinese community in the San Francisco Bay Area will soon reach victims of the deadliest wildfire in California, so that they would not feel "too cold" in this coming winter, an organizer of a fundraising event said Sunday.

Zinke said building restrictions in fire-prone areas should be part of a discussion about protections from wildfires.

"I was watching all of the homes around us just burn to the ground", Blevins said.

Search team members move sheet metal to allow cadaver dogs to search beneath them for signs of human remains at a mobile home park in Paradise, Calif.
