Death toll rises to 31 with 200 missing

The death toll in wildfires sweeping California has raised to 31, with more than 200 people still unaccounted. Six more people were confirmed killed in the Camp Fire in the north of the state, taking the toll there to 29. It now equals the deadliest wildfire on record in California the 1933 Griffith Park disaster in Los Angeles. In the south, the Woolsey Fire has claimed two lives as it damaged beach resorts including Malibu. An estimated 250,000 people have been forced to flee their homes to avoid three major blazes in the state. With strengthening winds threatening to spread the flames, state Governor Jerry Brown has urged President Donald Trump to declare a major disaster, a move that would harness more federal emergency funds.
