Death Toll Continues To Climb In Camp Fire

There are seven more victims of the Camp Fire in Northern California.  

Officials found the bodies Thursday, bringing the updated total of the deadliest wildfire in state history to 63.  

Three of the bodies were found in Paradise, three in Magalia, and one in Concow.  

Police also updated the list of unaccounted for people to 631, a huge increase of the 130 announced Wednesday.  Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea said the increase is because they are now including anyone who called 9-1-1 when the fire first arrived and caused chaos.  

They are hoping most of those people are simply displaced and will contact them so they can take their name off the list.  

Honea said they have tentatively identified 53 of the victims, but are waiting for DNA confirmation.
