Camp Fire now deadliest in the state as death toll rises to 42

The death toll from the devastating Camp Fire in Paradise, California, has risen to 42, media reported on November 12.

This makes the fire the deadliest in state history, after the Griffith Park Fire in 1933 that killed 29.

More than 200 people remain unaccounted for, meaning the toll could increase further. As of Monday night, the fire had scorched over 117,000 acres and stood at 30% containment.

In Northern California's Ventura County, the fast-moving Woolsey Fire has killed two and burned thousands of structures.
