PARADISE, Calif. (AP) -- Firefighters say at least one person has been found dead after a wildfire swept through an area near the Northern California town of Concow.
State fire Capt. Scott McLean confirmed the death Friday afternoon, but did not provide any details. He says the person killed was not a firefighter.
Fire officials estimate about 320 fires were still burning in the state this week, including a complex of blazes in Butte County that has forced some 10,000 residents of the town of Paradise to flee.
