Death toll rises to 88 in North California's Camp Fire

The nation's deadliest wildfire in a century killed at least 85 people, and 249 are on a list of those unaccounted for, but the sheriff's office says that number is down from more than 1,000 just a few days ago.

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

Cal Fire, the state's forestry and fire protection agency, announced the blaze was completely contained early Sunday.

The Camp Fire destroyed nearly 14,000 residences, as well as 528 commercial buildings and almost 4,300 other structures. For example, Honea said firefighters thought they had located remains from two individuals, but they turned out to be three individuals after testing.

"The fear is that the rain will drop in intense bursts", meteorologist Brian Hurley said.

But too much rain can also wash away remains or bury them in the caked mud, making them harder to find. A team from Orange County in Southern California is among several teams conducting a second search of a mobile home park after the deadly Camp wildfire torched part of Butte County in Northern California.

According to the latest incident update from California fire authorities, the cause of the fire remains under investigation.

The city of Paradise was a popular destination for retirees, with people ages 65 or older accounting for a quarter of its 27,000 residents.

Thousands of people remain displaced, some in emergency shelters or hotels and some in makeshift campsites.

"As of Saturday, the Chinese community from the Bay Area has raised more than 76,600 US dollars in cash for the Camp Fire victims in less than eight days, and it's wonderful", Jenny Huang, director of Silicon Valley Youth Orchestra, one of the leading organizers of the event, told Xinhua Sunday.
