The death toll from wildfires raging in California rose to 31 on Sunday after six more people were found killed in what was poised to become the deadliest wildfire in state history. Officials said the bodies of five people were found in burned-out homes and the sixth was found in a vehicle in northern California's Camp Fire, Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea told reporters on Sunday evening.

Deadliest wildfires in the United States since the 1990s
Wildfires raging in California are among the deadliest recorded in the United States, with at least 31 people killed in the state as 250,000 flee their homes. The largest and most destructive of the blazes is the "Camp Fire" in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains, which started on November 9 and has claimed 29 lives. This death toll matches the highest previously recorded for a single wildfire in the United States, when 29 people died fighting a blaze at Griffith Park in Los Angeles County in 1933.

Florida begins vote recount as Democrats and Republicans exchange allegations of fraud
Recounts of two key US midterm elections began in Florida on Sunday amid accusations of fraud by both sides in the race for governor and a Senate seat.  Exhausted election office employees in the Sunshine State have been told they have until Thursday to tally up votes cast in last Tuesday's election yet again.  Unofficial results which came in shortly after noon on Saturday showed Republican Rick Scott's lead in the race for the Senate had narrowed to 12,600 ahead of  Bill Nelson, the Democrat incumbent. Senator Bill Nelson, left, and current Florida governor Rick Scott, right, are facing off in a brutal senate race Credit: Kevin Kolczynski/Reuters Meanwhile Andrew Gillum, a Democrat vying to become the first black to serve as governor of Florida, retracted an earlier concession after the count narrowed to put him within 33,600 votes of Ron Desantis, the Republican candidate. Both counts were affected by the slow counting of postal votes, putting the candidates within a margin of error that triggered an automatic machine recount on Saturday. Accusations of fraud and threats of lawsuits from both sides have conjuring memories of the state's controversial recount during the 2000 presidential election. The recount ran into early problems in Broward country on Sunday, when a voting machine failed to register all ballots and Republicans asked for all voting machines to be tested.

The bodies were recovered in and around Paradise, a mountain community some 90 miles (145 km) north of Sacramento that has been left devastated by the Camp Fire, California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection spokesman Scott Maclean said. The Camp Fire burned down more than 6,700 homes and businesses in Paradise, more structures than any other California wildfire on record, and the death toll, which could still rise, also makes it one of the deadliest. Only the Griffith Park Fire in 1933 and Tunnel Fire in 1991 have claimed more lives.
