Camp Fire containment increases to 90 percent

News

The Camp Fire has charred more than 153,000 acres and is 90 percent contained as of Thursday morning. 

The death toll increased to 83 Wednesday night after two more bodies were discovered, Butte County sheriff’s deputies said.

The wildfire that began two weeks ago has scorched an area roughly the size of Chicago, burned down more than 13,000 homes and killed at least 83 people, with the number increasing daily.

Hundreds of people are unaccounted for — a list that’s constantly changing and has spread confusion about the ultimate number of victims.

The fire is expected to be contained by Nov. 30.
