Deadly California wildfire that incinerated Paradise is 100% contained

Irma Corona comforts neighbour Gerryann Wulbern in front of the remains of Wulbern’s home after the two returned for the first time since the Camp Fire in Paradise California

The wildfire, which ignited in a rural area November 8 before consuming the town of Paradise and roaring through nearby communities, has left a staggering toll.

Craig Covey, leading a search team from southern California's Orange County, said those looking through the devastation in Paradise and two nearby communities were not told to stop, but that he chose to take a break until the rain cleared.

Crews continue sifting through muddy ash for human remains in and around the devastated town of Paradise.

While rain complicated the search, it also helped almost extinguish the blaze, said Josh Bischof, operations chief for the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.

At least 85 people have been killed; 249 are still listed as missing.

After killing 85 people and destroying almost 14,000 homes, the deadliest and most destructive wildfire in California history is 100 per cent contained. Despite the inclement weather, more than 800 volunteers searched for remains on Thanksgiving and again Friday, two weeks after flames swept through the Sierra Nevada foothills, authorities said.

The fire was contained after 85 civilians died and almost 14,000 homes were destroyed.

While the rain made everybody colder and wetter, they kept the mission in mind, said Chris Stevens, a search volunteer who wore five layers of clothing to keep warm. "Collaboration btwn federal, state & local partners is a priority when it comes to helping folks get back on their feet".

Residents in Southern California received welcome news last week that the Woolsey Fire was contained.

The Camp Fire was the second major blaze to hit California in recent weeks with a fire in the Malibu area near Los Angeles also killing three people.

Ontario's largest utility said about 20 forestry technicians will travel to northern California on Monday to help inspect electrical systems in areas that were obliterated by the fire.

At the height of the fire 250,000 people, including celebrities Kim Kardashian West, Caitlyn Jenner, Orlando Bloom, Alyssa Milano, Lady Gaga, Rainn Wilson and fashion designer Donna Karan, fled their homes.

"The guys will never say it's hard", crew member David Kang said.

Rains over the last three days helped the firefighters contain the blaze, but they were destructive to homes that have been scorched, and may pose a danger to residents that return home.
