Berry Creek, California
Officials have said the number of fatalities from blazes in California, Oregon and Washington is likely to rise.
The death toll from the fires in California, Oregon and Washington stood at 31 and was expected to rise sharply.
Nine people, including a 16-year-old boy, have been confirmed dead since lightning-caused fires started weeks ago.
There is the unnerving prospect the death toll would climb as searchers look for 16 missing people.
