News video: California Fires Tie State Record For Most DeathsOn Thursday the death toll from the Northern California wildfires ticked higher. Authorities confirmed that 29 people have died so far in the course of the 21 fast-moving blazes. Sheriff Rob Giordano said in a press conference Thursday afternoon, fifteen of those fatalities have come in Sonoma County. The other deaths have been reported in Mendocino County, Yuba County, and Napa County. Those 29 deaths tie the state record for the deadliest wildfire in California history. The record was set in 1933, when a fast moving brush fire in Los Angeles’ Griffith Park killed 29 people and injured more than 150.
