Western wildfires live updates: Death toll rises to 33, dozens missing

Wildfires continued ravaging portions of the western United States on Sunday, stoked by gusty winds and dry conditions.

Although some weather relief appears to be en route in the coming days, millions of acres have already burned, particularly in California, Oregon and Washington. Homes and businesses have been engulfed, and injuries to both residents and first responders continue mounting.

Here are the latest updates:

Dozens remain missing in Oregon

Update 7:09 p.m. EDT Sept. 13: Oregon Gov. Kate Brown confirmed Sunday that dozens of Oregonians remain unaccounted for, especially in Jackson, Lane and Marion counties in the western portion of the state, as wildfires have torched at least 1 million acres statewide.

Oregon’s Office of Emergency Management confirmed the fires have claimed at least 10 lives to date, with four of the 10 resulting from the Beachie Creek Fire in Marion County, CNN reported.

Meanwhile, 40,000 residents have evacuated, and half a million remain under some type of evacuation alert, The Wall Street Journal reported.

California struggles to combat mounting outbreaks

Update 6:53 p.m. EDT Sept. 13: Wildfires have scorched more than 3.3 million acres to date across California since Aug. 15, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection confirmed Sunday.

The August Complex Fire burning in the Mendocino National Forest accounts for more than one-quarter of the total acreage destroyed to date and as of Sunday was only 28% contained, CNN reported.

Meanwhile, the U.S. Forest Service confirmed Saturday that the North Complex Fire, ravaging the Sierra Nevada range north of Sacramento, has already consumed 258,000 and is responsible for at least 12 deaths, The Wall Street Journal reported.


Elsewhere, the LNU Complex Fire, which was roughly 96% contained Saturday, has burned more than 363,000 acres to date, and more than 4,100 structures statewide have been destroyed since Aug. 15, Cal Fire confirmed Sunday.

According to the Journal, an estimated 16,750 firefighters are fighting blazes statewide and at least 42,000 residents remained evacuated Sunday.

Meanwhile, the spread of the Bobcat Fire in the Angeles National Forest prompted new evacuation orders for residents in parts of Arcadia, a community in the foothills about 20 miles northeast of downtown Los Angeles, the Journal reported.



Death toll climbs to 33 in 3 states

Update 6:24 p.m. EDT Sept. 13: At least 33 people, the majority in recent days, have died in three states since wildfires began ravaging the Western United States in mid-August.

Officials confirmed Sunday that 22 of those deaths have occurred in California, 10 have occurred in Oregon and one child was killed in Washington state, CNN reported.

According to Cal Fire officials, 13 new wildfires erupted Friday in California, but only one – in Siskiyou County – outgrew the initial response. Meanwhile, cooler temperatures Friday night into Saturday helped firefighters gain better control of multiple blazes, with some fires approaching full containment, The Wall Street Journal reported.

The National Interagency Fire Center confirmed Sunday morning that 25 of the blazes currently being battled are in California, 16 are in Washington, 13 are in Oregon and 10 are in Idaho, but fires have also emerged in Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming.

“More than 30,000 firefighters and support personnel are assigned to incidents across the country,” the center stated.



Deadly North Complex Fire 26% contained

Update 12:15 p.m. EDT Sept. 13: The deadly North Complex Fire has engulfed 258,802 acres and is 26% contained, fire officials said.

The fire has forced evacuations, damaged hundreds of buildings and left at least 12 people dead, including 16-year-old Josiah Williams.


There are 76 crews and 3,229 personnel fighting the multiple fires that are ravaging California.

Puppy found amid rubble of California wildfire

Update 11:45 a.m. EDT Sept. 13: Rescuers found a soot-covered puppy amid the rubble from wildfires that are ravaging California.

The Butte County Sheriff’s Office found the puppy hiding Friday in what looked like part of an engine on a property in Berry Creek.

The puppy, who has been temporarily named Trooper, had minor burns and was taken to a veterinarian for treatment.

Creek Fire has 8% containment

Update 12:06 a.m. EDT Sept. 13: Containment for California’s Creek Fire increased to 8% on the Creek Fire, the Fresno Bee reported.

The number of firefighters assigned rose to 2,301, it also was announced at Saturday’s nightly video update on Facebook live, an increase of about 500 from a day earlier.

That was an indication both of the massive challenges posed by the fire as well as the freeing up of the state’s firefighting force as other fires burning in the state moved closer to containment.

Three more people were arrested for running roadblocks in the evacuation

A strong-winds warning has been issued as emergency crews battle to contain nearly 100 wildfires burning in the US states of Oregon, Washington and California.

And President Donald Trump has stoked controversy, ahead of a visit to Oregon, claiming that the solution to the fires is better “forest management”, not tackling climate change.
