Two-Time Cancer Survivor Killed in California Wildfires
The Camp Fire has burned through 117,000 acres and is just 30 percent contained.
A two-time cancer survivor is among the 42 victims of the devastating California wildfires.
Ernest Foss, 65, had survived cancer twice but the disease caused physical disabilities that left him bedbound. His body was found outside his home in Paradise, according to reports.
The Camp Fire, which has already burned through 117,000 acres and destroyed 6,453 structures in Northern California, was only 30 percent contained by Tuesday.
Authorities have also confirmed the deaths of two other people due to the fires: Jesus Fernandez, 48, and Carl Wiley, 77.
On Monday, Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea said they have 13 coroner agencies helping search for human remains as well as three anthropology search teams. Authorities said they also plan to use cadaver dogs.
More than 200 people were still missing as of Monday, Honea said.
Nearly 150,000 people have been evacuated due to the fires, California Gov. Jerry Brown said Sunday.
"This is truly a tragedy that all Californians can understand and respond to," Brown said. "It's a time to pull together and work through these tragedies."
