Missing List Jumps to Over 600 on the Camp Fire; Humboldt County Residents Are There to Fight the Flames (Maps, Video, Photos)
Some of those will eventually be located alive but the number of people killed will also surely continue to rise. 63 bodies have been located so far. Three more were located in Magalia–“two inside structures and one outside.” Another three were located in Paradise–“two inside structures and one in a vehicle.” And the remains of one human was found outdoors in Concow.
And beyond the loss of life is the incredible number of lost homes. Around 9700 residences are now reported destroyed and 336 businesses that people had poured their hopes and dreams into are gone. That doesn’t even count the outbuildings crumbled to smoking ash.
The Camp Fire has now covered 142,000 acres and is 45% contained.
Last night, the fire continued to creep towards the northeast. Cal Fire said their crews “worked last night to continue improving containment lines through indirect methods and back-firing as conditions allow.”
They will continue to do that today.Diana Totten, a well-known Humboldt County resident, who is supervising the Division in charge of stopping the wall of fire moving towards Stirling City, reached us this morning as she made her way to the northern front of the fire. Totten said that the Humboldt County Strike team, Cal Fire engines from Humboldt, and independent workers from the area have been very helpful in fighting the deadly Camp Fire.
“We’ve made a huge impact on how this fire has gone,” she said. “It’s something to be proud of that our small communities have made a difference. We’ve come from small communities to help protect other small communities.”
Firefighters are worried about a Fire Weather Watch that is predicted from Saturday evening until Sunday evening. But currently, the temperatures, humidity and amount of wind remain basically unchanged from yesterday.
