Number of missing people in California wildfires doubles to over 630

Smoke from the Woolsey fire shrouds parts of Malibu Calif. A firefighter from South Kitsap Fire and Rescue has been injured at the Woolsey fire

Rescue workers have been combing through the charred ruins of the town of Paradise a week after it burned to the ground in the Camp Fire in northern California, the worst in the state's history.

The list of people unaccounted for in the Camp Fire rose dramatically from 297 to 631 Thursday-and while many of them may be people who failed to contact loved ones after evacuating, authorities fear the death toll is also going to jump.

Honea said that while recovery efforts remain hard, increased resources have helped "bring more order to the chaos that we're dealing with".

It's unclear what will be done if people don't leave Sunday, but city officials don't plan to kick them out, said Betsy Totten, a Chico spokeswoman.

California authorities collected DNA samples from relatives on Thursday to help identify victims of the western U.S. state's deadliest-ever wildfire. "There are more evacuees, more people running out of money for hotels".
