North California sheriff tells 14 extra organs as he recovers to bring death toll to 23 in a major forest fires

PARADISE, California (AP) – The authorities called the Mobile DNA Laboratory and anthropologists to help identify dead when search continues from California's most devastating firefighters. The death penalty when the general fire broke out on both ends of the state was on the 25th Sunday and was likely to rise.

Altogether, more than 8,000 firefighters fought three major forest fires, which were burned down to nearly 400 square miles (1,040 square miles) in northern and southern California when state crews continued to fire and steered the winds.

The worst offenders were in northern California, where flames lowered the paradise of the 27,000-year-old smoking tree days ago and continued rampaging in the surrounding communities. The number of people killed in fire alone, at least 23, made it the third death in a record state.

Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea said in the county he brought more rescue workers and listened to anthropologists at the California State University in Chicco, as in some cases "the only traces we can find are bones or bones."

"This weighs heavy on us all," Honea said.

The authorities also produced a DNA lab and encouraged people with missing relatives to show samples to identify dead after death, destroying more than 6,700 buildings, almost all of their homes.

The Sheriff's Department created a list of 110 people who had disappeared, but officials hoped that many were safe but had no cell phones or other means of contacting their loved ones. Firefighters reached a modest land overnight in flames, which grew slightly from the previous day by 170 square kilometers, but 25 percent were 20 percent according to the Fire Fire State Fire Office.

Cal Fire's spokeswoman Bill Murphy warned, however, that forecasted winds from Monday morning may trigger "explosive fire behavior".

Two people were also found dead in southern California, where the flames tore Malibu mansions and labor camps in Los Angeles suburbs. Seriously burned bodies were found in a long residential area in the famous Malibu, where the homes were forced by Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian West, Guillermo del Toro and Martin Sheen.

Flames also besieged Thousand Oaks, a town of southern California, with a mourning 12-man massacre on Monday night in the music bar of the country.

Fire officials said on Sunday morning that the largest area of ​​the two fire burns around Malibu, increased by 130 square kilometers (337 square kilometers) and was 10 percent. But the strong, dry Santa Ana winds blasting from the interior to the coast, returned a day after a joke and throwing flames.

The number of fires in south-eastern California fell to almost 180, the authorities said.

Everything is reported that a quarter of a million people were evacuated up and down to the state.

Gov. Jerry Brown said he was asking President Donald Trump for a major accident clause that would allow victims to come to crisis advice, housing and unemployment assistance and legal aid.

Drought, warmer weather for climate change, and home building forests deepened have led to longer and more destructive volcanic eruptions in California. California officially appeared on a five-year drought last year, but largely two-thirds of the north is unusually dry.

A town set up in Paradise in the 19th century, the people who left behind trying to save their belongings or who managed to return to the evacuation order despite the cars and homes being fired.

The moods, as the air was still heavy with smoke, displaced metal that had melted away from cars or Jet-Ski as they explored discarded residential areas. Some cried when they did not see anything.

Jan McGregor, 81, returned to a small two-bedroom home in Paradise with the help of his firefighter. He found his home flat – a large wire mesh and falls from the precipitation system, the only identifiable traces. The box was punctuated by firearms on firearms that went into burning heat.

He lived in Paratiis for almost 80 years, moved there in 1939, when there were only 3,000 people in the city and nicknamed Poverty Ridge.

& # 39; & # 39; We knew that Paradise was the main target of forestry over the years, "he said. "" We've even come across city boundaries – oh, yes – but no such thing. "

McGregor said he probably would not rebuild: "I have nothing here to come back."
