PARADISE (AP) — Authorities have identified three more victims of a fire that virtually wiped out the town of Paradise.

The Camp Fire last November killed 86 people and destroyed 14,000 homes, most of them in Paradise.

The Butte County Sheriff’s Office on Monday named three people whose remains were found after the blaze.

They are 68-year-old Isabel Webb, 79-year-old Herbert Alderman and 81-year-old Evelyn Cline, all of Paradise.

Cline’s nephew, Paul Henson, told the San Francisco Chronicle last year that her car had been found in the garage, with the roof of her mobile home collapsed on it. Henson said he’d hoped a neighbor had rescued her but knew it was unlikely.

The Sheriff’s Office says two victims remain unidentified. Anthropologists believe one of the victims may have been a larger, older man who had dental crowns.
