Massive wildfires raging in Northern and Southern California have killed at least 25 people and destroyed thousands of homes as firefighters deal with heavy winds. According to officials, the largest and deadliest of the infernos is the Camp Fire, which as of Sunday had burned 109,000 acres, leveled 6,453 homes and another 260 commercial structures in Northern California’s Butte County. At least 23 civilians have been killed in the Camp Fire, which began on Thursday and quickly swept through communities in the Sierra foothills, devastating the town of Paradise.
As of Sunday night, 25 percent of Camp Fire was contained, according to Cal Fire. The Woolsey Fire in Southern California was only 10 percent contained on Sunday, after destroying 83,275 acres across Los Angeles and Ventura counties and destroying 177 structures, Cal Fire said.
