Forty dead and hundreds missing as California 'horror' fires devastate area bigger than New York City 

Forty dead and hundreds missing as California 'horror' fires devastate area bigger than New York City The death toll in California’s wildfires passed 40 at the weekend, with hundreds of people still missing in the most lethal outbreak of bush fires in the state’s history. More than 100,000 people have been forced to flee their homes as entire neighbourhoods are reduced to blackened ruins. Authorities hope weakening winds will help more than 10,000 firefighters contain fires that have already consumed more than 330 square miles, an area larger than New York City. “This is truly one of the greatest tragedies that California has ever faced,” said Jerry Brown, California governor, during a visit to the affected region. “The devastation is just unbelievable. It is a horror that no one could have imagined.” Hundreds of buildings are devastated in Santa Rosa, California  Credit: AFP PHOTO / JOSH EDELSONJOSH EDELSON/AFP/Getty Images Firefighters reported progress at the end of last week, clearing dry vegetation and starting to contain some of the 17 separate fires that are still burning. Crews from the states of Colorado, Washington and Nevada have joined the effort. From the air, some 70 helicopters and large aircraft including a 747, two DC-10s and a dozen air tankers have dropped millions of gallons of water and retardants on the flames.

Chris Canning, the mayor, said all but 12 of the city’s 5200 population had left. He said the winds were keeping the flames just over two miles from the city limit. “If the winds shift and come back again, that's a big concern,” he told the Associated Press.
