More than two weeks after it erupted, the deadliest and most destructive fire in California´s history was finally brought under total control by firefighters, authorities said on Sunday.
The so-called Camp Fire, which broke out on November 8, has so far killed 85 people.
The Butte County Sheriff´s department said that they had mistakenly added two people to an earlier death toll of 87.
However late Sunday they increased the number of missing people to 296 from 249 — still considerably lower than the 474 reported missing on Friday.
Only 54 of the fatalities have been identified, according to the local sheriff´s office in Butte County, a rural area north of the state capital Sacramento.
A total of 153,336 acres were affected by the fire, with nearly 14,000 homes and hundreds of other structures destroyed.
California´s governor, Jerry Brown, has warned that the state can expect a growing number of major fires as a result of global warming.
