The wildfire currently raging in California on Monday became the deadliest and most destructive in the state’s history, as authorities announced over 42 have been killed so far with hundreds more missing.

Officials during a press conference on Monday night said they had found the remains of 13 more people since the day before, bringing the Northern California death toll to 42 and overall state toll to 44.

Wildfires have been raging in northern and southern California since last week, incinerating huge swaths of land and creating an escalating crisis as thousands have been forced to evacuate.
