Wildfires in California remain only about 30 percent contained, despite a massive effort by fire crews to stop the blaze. According to a report from Reuters, the “Camp Fire” — as it is being called — has thus far destroyed 125,000 acres, leveled a town, and has claimed 42 lives. 7,600 buildings, including thousands of homes, are believed to have been destroyed as well, and more than 200 people are still unaccounted for. California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (Cal Fire) told reporters that this is the most destructive and deadly wildfire in California history.
