Search winds down


SAN FRANCISCO — The search for people unaccounted for after the deadliest US wildfire in at least a century is winding down in Northern California, with just 11 names left on a fluctuating list that once approached 1,300 and prompted fears that hundreds had died in the flames.

The declining number released late Monday came as a relief in the Paradise area as it reels from the wildfire that killed at least 85 people and destroyed nearly 14,000 homes.

Authorities now say they have located more than 3,100 people who had been reported as unreachable at some point during the catastrophe.
