The death toll from California wildfires has climbed to 31 on Thursday, officials said.

Eric Morrison, wildfire evacuee from Sonoma said in a statement, “It’s all the comforts of home if you need to get by in a pinch. The bottom line is we have a hot shower, a bathroom and a bed and blankets”.

The officials have warned that the death toll is likely to increase.

The officials said more than 400 people were still missing.

It was reported that the fire erupted on Sunday and was allegedly spread by strong winds, destroying 3,500 homes in the area.

“We are not even close to being out of this emergency”, Mark Ghilarducci, director of the state’s Office of Emergency Services said.

It was learned that Sonoma and Napa countries were badly affected.

The fires reportedly grew to more than 300 square miles approximately to 777 square kilometers.

The Sonoma County Sheriff said, “It could be weeks or even months before all the bodies are identified”.
