California wildfires

Some residents have took to social media to share what little was left of their own homes upon their return.

It's a grim reality driven home by scenes from all around the state, especially the town of Paradise, California, which has been all but wiped out by the Camp Fire, now the deadliest fire in the state's history.

The blaze killed at least 42 people and left family and friends desperate to find the many more that remain missing.

"I love my place", he said.
