About 800 firefighters struggled to contain the blazes on Friday, which have killed an unprecedented 31 people and destroyed at least 35,000 homes and businesses. An estimated 25,000 people have been forced to flee, with new evacuations still being issued.

Wildfires which began Sunday have left hundreds more missing or injured, authorities said on Friday.
They explained that the real recovery efforts will begin once firefighters are able to contain the 21 wildfires, which are covering more than 300 square kilometres. Most are less than 10 per cent contained.
