California wildfires: Number of missing leaps to 631.
The number of people missing in northern California’s devastating wildfire has leapt to more than 600, and seven more bodies have been found, according to local authorities.
The missing persons’ list has doubled since earlier on Thursday.
The Camp Fire, the state’s deadliest and most destructive blaze, has killed at least 63 people. Nearly 12,000 buildings have been destroyed.
Three more people have also died in the Woolsey Fire, further south.
President Donald Trump will travel to California on Saturday to survey the damage and meet those affected.
About 9,400 firefighters are currently battling wildfires across the state.
The Camp Fire – which broke out eight days ago – swept through a swathe of the north at high speed, fanned by the wind, leaving residents little time to escape.
