REDDING, Calif. -- The death toll for the Carr Fire is now at 5 after fire officials recovered the bodies of two children and their great grandmother in the rubble of a burnt home this afternoon.
The victims have been identified as 70-year-old Melody Bledsoe, 5-year-old James Roberts and 4-year-old Emily Roberts.
Police in Northern California say they have been unable to locate 14 people, including the 70-year-old woman and her great-grandchildren following the Carr Fire.
Redding Police Sergeant Todd Cogle said he expects most of the 14 to be safe because their homes survived the fire.
