Camp Fire Death Toll Climbs to 71, Hundreds Still Missing, 9,844 Residences, 336 Commercial & 2,076 Other Buildings Destroyed

Paradise, CA...Today firefighters continued to make progress on the Camp Fire. Hand crews and dozers have been working to implement primary and secondary control lines in steep and rugged terrain. Firefighters have made great progress in strengthening and connecting existing control lines around the fire. More resources, including a contingency of fire engines, will be staged in preparation for increased winds over the weekend due to a Red Flag Warning. Firefighters and our utility cooperators continue to work tirelessly to mitigate hazards and increase safety in the burn areas.

I have 3 relatives that I have put up in a hotel in Jackson. I thought about registering them at the Red Cross site as ok. But, when I went there it looked like I might be putting them in danger of some kind. The site says they give out the info to others? Not sure what to do. They got out but here was also ashes of another relative that was also there? There is no info of what should be reported anywhere that I can find, and we do not want to burden searching or recovery?

    Please excuse my typo, "They got out but here" should have been there.

    Thank you for listening I am quite stressed, and helping them and several pets they have.

      My heart goes out to you....I really don't know the answer to your question but might suggest you contact your local Amador County Office of Emergency Services or your local Red Cross to see if they can help or have suggestions. This is heartbreaking for all Californians.

      Best wishes.

        I think letting the Sheriff's Office know they are OK is the right think to do, as suggested below. That will make sure resources are not tied up looking for them and the search for others can go a little faster.

        This is a horrible tragedy and I am disappointed that some are using this thread for cheap political postings. If there was ever a time to rise above politics, this is it.

          I agree, that should start with our leader, the president.

      She's still commenting on the enterprise so I guess her phone was hidden up her glory hole.
