CHICO, California — As the Camp Fire continues to burn, 12 days later, and at 66 percent containment, 77 deaths have been confirmed, and 993 are left unaccounted for.

With over 151,000 acres burned, the search for the unaccounted is unprecedented.

“We don’t normally have a process to deal with this many unaccounted for individuals,” Butte County Sheriff and Coroner Kory Honea told VICE News. But the list has posed several challenges for authorities trying to track everyone down. Issues range from: People not knowing they are on the list, duplicated names due to converged data sets, to even finding remains in all the debris.

While the list of unaccounted people represents an imperfect picture of the missing, it does illustrate the large retirement community in the area. Paradise, the city hardest hit by the fires, was known, in part, as a retirement community, a quiet place for people to get away.

VICE News spent time with Tammie Konicki, during her search for her missing 64-year-old mother, who was last seen getting into a car the morning of the fire.

“Hopefully she is somewhere and just doesn’t have a way to get a hold of us,” Konicki said of her mother. “Right now, for me, no news is good news, because no news means she hasn’t been found dead,” she said. “She’s not one of those bodies as of yet.”

    Excellent video.

  2. Diocletian says

    It’s so bad out here in the Sacramento area, can’t imagine how it is up near Paradise and Chico. The rain came today thank god. I hope it stays. I’ll be in San Francisco Friday to see Behemoth, and the air has been bad there too.

  3. Teresa Svensson says

    So sorry, prayers for you all, and us. Well soon it could be everywhere.

  4. Forest fire ? Then why trees were not burned down ? May be because they are made of iron ?

  5. Puppeteers from Jewish Masonic mafia are crazy nonhumans, but their madness is in fact logical and simply explained. These non-sex degenerates of the human race have sick and distorted entities due to falling under the influence of the infernal world thousands of years ago. Their priests-Satanists having connection with dark forces, constantly receive pointers from the intermediate world and implement them on Earth in the form of famine, epidemics, wars with ,, terrorism ", religions, alcohol, drugs, etc. The goal of all this is the destruction of our civilization with our own hands. First and foremost, the white race is to be eliminated, as it is the most developed and therefore the main danger for social parasites. Especially these filth seek to decompose and destroy the Slavic peoples ( the spiritual leaders of the white race ). After all, it is our peoples who are the heirs of the Slav-Aryans, who once opposed the Atlantes, who fell under the power of the dark forces ( the continuity of modern NATO from Atlani can be seen even from the name – the Atlantic Alliance).

  6. David Kupfer says

    Right when the US is facing its biggest fight in history, against climate change, it has a leader who denies its existence, who is more worried about China and who pulled out of the paris climate agreements. With the best of luck California stays inhabitable for 10 more years, until every single water source is depleted. Its heart breaking to realize that these scenes will be more common in future.

  7. Jessica McNally says

    VICE I suggest you do a story on DEW and at least consider the alternative perspective.

  8. Jeanne K says

    land grab for the proposed bullet train…fires are in it's path

  12. rdooski says

    This fire was started by a projectile or some sort of explosion. And it was caught on a nasa satellite. Its shown right at the beginning of this video.

  13. TrypSquad says

    The campfire??!! 0:18

  14. Trish Wade says

    Have they asked the South-East Asian authorities who coordinated the searches for the missing after the tsunami for some help in how to manage this?

  15. Alec Levy-O'Brien says

    Most destructive and deadliest, not largest. Best wishes to all affected by the fires and smoke.

  16. Ravi Kumar says

    God punished them because they banned Bible in California

  17. David Lang says

    This told the story of the Camp fire in a way that brought it home. It made it personal. Vice News have always understood what’s important and meaningful in a story. I’m so disappointed in how traditional news sources have failed so miserably in their reportage. Thank you for your good work.

  18. Ivory Peteet says

    I live in chico and half my family lives in paradise this has been a sad month

  20. attovishnu says

    Where were the cops that are always spouting off about how fucking great they are?

  21. pixiniarts says

    Terrible to say it but with the extremely high temperatures and prolonged burning there will be a number permanently missing.
    I just hope to god that the number is far lower than the estimated figure.

  22. ohmusicsweetmusic says

    the pre-placed wheel chair and walker in front of the burned building was a nice touch.
