Camp Fire is most destructive wildfire in California history: 9 dead, 6,713 structures incinerated – SFChronicle.com

PARADISE, Butte County — The deadly Camp Fire that has claimed the lives of at least nine people and devastated a bucolic Butte County town has grown to 90,000 acres and destroyed 6,713 structures — nearly all homes, making it the most destructive fire in California history. The aggressive inferno that blazed through Paradise in the Sierra foothills Thursday morning continued to threaten lives and homes on Friday, forcing several rescues of trapped residents. Last year’s 36,807-acre Tubbs Fire destroyed 5,636 structures and had become the most destructive wildfire in state history.
