California's "Camp Fire" death toll jumps to 48

Officials said Tuesday night the "Camp Fire" in Northern California has scorched some 130,000 acres and is 35 percent contained. In addition, six more human remains were found earlier in the day, bringing the "Camp Fire" death toll to 48. Statewide there are a total of 50 deaths.

Some 9,000 firefighters have been battling the wildfires, which have become the deadliest and costliest in state history. Search teams have been using power saws and cadaver dogs to try to locate victims of the "Camp Fire" in Northern California.

Those who survived were left scrambling to find a place to stay. In Southern California, evacuation orders were lifted for many of the areas affected by the "Woolsey Fire," but some came home only to be told to leave again.
