Heavy rains hit areas scarred by the deadliest wildfire. The rains caused flooding and prompted evacuations of homes and shut down part of a highway.
Three-inches of rain was recorded, rescue men were seen using rafts to reach the affected areas. Thunderstorms surrounded both the Campfire and Woolsey Fire areas.
The National Weather Service warned of possible mud and debris flow in burned areas.
Last week authorities had contained the campfire, after 2 weeks. The nation’s deadliest wildfire in a century killed 85 people, and pinned 249 on the missing list.
Due to the heavy downpour it would be difficult for the authorities to sniff through debris and find human remains.
