Fires continue in California

Two people have died in a wildfire that ripped through a Northern California town, a local official has said, as firefighters in the far north of the state on Sunday battled blazes that forced evacuations and destroyed dozens of homes.

“There’s no easy way of putting it,” said Siskiyou county sheriff Jeremiah LaRue as he shared the news of the fatalities on Sunday afternoon during a community meeting held at an elementary school north of the rural community of Weed. He did not immediately provide names or other details including age or gender of the two people who died.

Both LaRue and other officials said it was not clear when people would be allowed back into their homes, and when power would be restored for the people still without it.
