For the third day in a row, Butte County searchers reported Wednesday they found no new human remains in areas burned by the Camp Fire, prompting the county’s sheriff to say he is hoping the death toll has reached its peak. That number, 88, is the highest by far in California history from a wildfire. Officials say 18 thousand burned structures have now been searched and searching has stopped.  The Sheriff’s office has ask residents that return to their home areas be on the look out for remains and contact their office at anything that looks like it could be a remain.  The list of missing persons has increased as of yesterday to 196.
