PARADISE, Calif. (AP) — Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea says the number of those unaccounted for in and around the town of Paradise on Wednesday is 196. The death toll remains at 88.

Honea clarified a previous statement he made claiming some fire victims might have been "completely consumed" by flames. Honea says experts informed him that in most cases some bone fragments likely remain. He urges people who find fragments to not disturb the area and call authorities.

Officials say rain moving into the area overnight could delay repopulation plans. The National Weather Service says up to an inch of rain could fall Thursday in the burn zone, raising the risk of flash floods.
