Crews battling California fires head to devastated areas

Despite the progress, there's concern the death toll may mount as crews reach devastated areas.

BERRY CREEK, Calif. — Smoke from massive wildfires that painted skies orange throughout California is helping crews struggling to surround the deadliest blaze of the year. But despite the progress, there's concern the death toll may mount as crews reach devastated areas. Nine people, including a 16-year-old boy, have been confirmed dead in the North Complex fire that destroyed the foothill hamlet of Berry Creek northeast of San Francisco. But crews haven’t managed to search some hot zones for more victims. Officials say smoke from fires around the state have blocked the sun, reducing temperatures and raising humidity. The favorable weather is expected to continue through Saturday.
