California: Firefighters gain ground as search for missing people continues

  • US firefighters have gained more ground in their battle against two deadly wildfires in northern California as the search for missing people continues, reports said.

    Three people including an elderly woman were killed by the Valley fire, which has destroyed more than 73,000 acres, officials said.  

    Two others who did not comply with evacuation orders died in the Butte fire in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada.  

    Together the two fires have forced around 23,000 to evacuate.
