The damages caused by the so-called Camp Fire, in northern California, do not stop, until this Saturday, the count is 84 dead, 475 missing and almost 14 thousand houses totally destroyed, local authorities reported.
The forest fire, identified as the deadliest in the history of California, devastated almost 62 thousand hectares, but the damage may increase, although it has managed to contain 95% of the fire thanks to the rains in the area, there are still areas in which about 1,600 firefighters work, assisted by bulldozers and helicopters, to mitigate the risk.
Thousands of people have been displaced by the massive fire, evacuations and road closures are still in force.
Once the 100% fire is extinguished, the authorities foresee that the removal of ashes and other toxic debris from the fire will be the largest effort of its kind.
In addition, the National Meteorological Service said that until next Friday the sudden flood warning will be in effect for burned areas due to heavy rains in areas that were recently burned, which increases the chances of ash and debris landslides.
The series of large forest fires registered in California, burned more than 102 thousand hectares and destroyed approximately 20 thousand 391 structures.
