The Camp Fire has killed 81 people, making it the deadliest fire in California history. There were still 699 people missing as of Monday. The fire has destroyed nearly 13,000 residences and thousands more businesses and buildings.
As of Sunday, the Woolsey Fire of Southern California had killed three people and destroyed or damaged nearly 2,000 buildings.
This is pretty amazing of Rodgers.
