The Camp Fire, which erupted in Northern California on Thursday, has killed at least 63 people, with 600 people still missing, and burned through 117,000 acres of land. Already the most destructive fire in the state’s history, it remained just 30 percent contained as of Monday night.
The Woolsey Fire outside Los Angeles, which started Thursday and doubled in size overnight, has killed two people and burned nearly 100,000 acres. Both fires prompted the evacuation of hundreds of thousands of people, some not realizing how dangerous the fires had become until flames arrived at their doorsteps.
The Hill Fire, which destroyed 4,500 acres in Ventura County, was 85 percent contained on Monday, the result of aggressive firefighting and favorable weather conditions.
