Death toll rises to 23 in California wildfire after 14 bodies found

The charred remains of 14 more people have been found in and around a Northern California town overrun by flames from a massive wildfire, officials said, raising the death toll to at least 23.The bodies were recovered in and around Paradise, a mountain community some 90 miles north of Sacramento that has been left devastated by the Camp Fire.

The Camp Fire burned down more than 6,700 homes and businesses in Paradise, more structures than any other California wildfire on record, and the death toll, which could still rise, also makes it one of the deadliest.Only the Griffith Park Fire in 1933 and Tunnel Fire in 1991 have claimed more lives.Several of the bodies discovered earlier this week were found in or near burned out cars, police have said. The flames descended on Paradise so fast that many people were forced to abandon their vehicles and run for their lives down the sole road through the mountain town.
