Of­fi­cial search for vic­tims of Camp Fire is com­pleted

Star-Telegram - - News - — NEW YORK TIMES

Search teams that rushed to North­ern Cal­i­for­nia after fire lev­eled en­tire towns have com­pleted their work, hav­ing checked ev­ery burned build­ing in the fire zone for hu­man re­mains, the au­thor­i­ties said Thurs­day.

But the search of nearly 18,000 fire-rav­aged struc­tures — ev­ery­thing from homes, churches, stores and gar­den sheds — has not re­solved the ques­tion of why nearly 200 peo­ple re­main listed as miss­ing.

It is pos­si­ble that the death toll, which stands at 88, will rise, if some re­mains were over­looked or are found later in forests or other ar­eas that were not searched.
