At least 29 people are dead and hundreds are missing as rescuers and first responders continue to search for victims of one of the deadliest wildfires in California history.

According to the Associated Press, strong winds and dry weather are expected to make the inferno worse in the coming days; creating new difficulties for firefighters and rescue crews.

“A total of 29 bodies have been found so far from that fire, Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea told a news briefing Sunday evening. He said 228 people were still unaccounted for,” writes the AP.

California Governor Jerry Brown spoke with reporters this week; saying climate-change “deniers” are “contributing to the tragedies.”

“Managing all the forests everywhere we can does not stop climate change,” Brown said. “And those who deny that are definitely contributing to the tragedies that we’re now witnessing, and will continue to witness in the coming years.”
