After devastating loss of life and property here comes another hit from California wildfires

The Butte County Sheriff announced new information in the human toll from the Camp Fire Thursday, saying seven more bodies were found in the wreckage left behind by the deadly blaze, bringing number of dead to 63.

The wildfires this month are officially the worst in California's history - with at least 80 confirmed dead and 631 missing, over 1.6 million acres of land destroyed and more than $3 billion worth of damage caused. Three people have also died in the "Woolsey Fire" in Southern California.

The firefighter is among the more than 100 firefighters from Washington state who have been sent to both Northern and Southern California to help with the deadly wildfires. As of now, 56 are dead and 297 people are missing.

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.

The fire is now 40 percent contained, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection and the Butte County Fire Department.

"The level of chaos we were dealing with was extraordinary", says Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea, whose office released the list of names.

Searching has intensified in the town of Paradise in northern California which was completely obliterated in the recent wildfires. The wildfire has destroyed roughly 500 structures in Malibu and neighboring areas, as it's burned more than 98,000 acres with a 62 percent containment.

"It's cold and scary", said Lilly Batres, 13, one of the few children there, who fled with her family from the forested town of Magalia and did not know whether her home survived.

The Nov. 8 fire killed 63 people, destroyed 9,700 homes and displaced 52,000 people in the town of Paradise and nearby towns. One body in Paradise was found in a auto that had been flipped on its side. Evacuees milling in the parking lot faced morning temperatures that dropped to just above freezing and many wore breathing masks for protection from lingering smoke.

The White House has said Donald Trump will visit California on Saturday to meet people affected by the disaster.

The blaze destroyed almost 8,800 homes in the former gold mining settlement.
