LOMA RICA — Of the four peo­ple re­ported miss­ing dur­ing the Cas­cade Fire in Yuba County, one has been found safe, two are still miss­ing and one was found dead. The dis­cov­ery marks the sec­ond death as­so­ci­ated with the fire.

Ac­cord­ing to the Yuba County Sher­iff ’s Of­fice, a body was found at a burned res­i­dence in Loma Rica on Tues­day af­ter­noon dur­ing a wel­fare check af­ter a cit­i­zen re­ported a fam­ily friend miss­ing. The vic­tim’s iden­tity has not been re­leased pend­ing no­ti­fi­ca­tion of fam­ily.

The first death hap­pened early Mon­day af­ter a truck driven by a wo­man went off a pri­vate road while evac­u­at­ing the area. As the flames ap­proached, by­standers at­tempted to free her, but her ve­hi­cle was over­come by the fire. Her dog was also killed.

Spokes­woman Les­lie Car­bah said there is no time­line for when the two iden­ti­ties will be con­firmed. With fire fa­tal­i­ties, con­fir­ma­tion can be de­layed, wait­ing on den­tal records, DNA, and other iden­ti­fy­ing fac­tors, she said.
