Deadly wildfires rage across the US West Coast

At least 35 people have died in the West Coast wildfires, including 24 in California, 10 in Oregon and a child in Washington state.

The most deadly blaze has been the North Complex Fire, accounting for more than half of the victims in California.

And weather could worsen the blazes: Weather conditions are not scheduled to improve any time soon as high winds of up to 40 mph are forecast in the coming days in parts of California.

Fire weather watches have been issued throughout the region and, while rain may hit the coastlines of Oregon and Washington where wildfires continue to rage, California is forecast to remain dry.

“A Fire Weather Watch is in effect Monday over the Northern Sierra, potentially impacting the North Complex with gusty winds,” CalFire said in an update Sunday.
