PARADISE, Calif. (AP) - It's been 100 days since a wildfire nearly burned the town of Paradise off the map, and grief among survivors is still raw.
Authorities are almost done identifying all 85 who died.
The Butte County sheriff's office released the names of two more victims this week, bringing the total number of people publicly identified to 73.
Most of the deceased were elderly, and many were disabled. The oldest was 99, and 59 of the people who have been identified were 65 or older.
The Nov. 8 Northern California blaze destroyed nearly 15,000 homes in the city of 27,000 residents.
The long road to recovery is continuing, but much of Paradise feels like a ghost town where survivors still dig for keepsakes in the foundations of their homes.
Work crews have been cutting down trees and clearing debris from burned-out lots.
