Northern California chokes on toxic air as Trump set to visit
Schools and tourist attractions across the San Francisco Bay Area were shut Friday and residents were urged to stay indoors as smoke from California's deadliest wildfire -- a three-hour drive away -- produced air quality levels worse than in South Asia's polluted megacities. The closures came as President Donald Trump was set to visit the western state Saturday to survey the damage and meet victims of the giant Camp Fire that has devoured an area roughly the size of Chicago since it broke out last week, killing at least 63 people. In an interview with Fox News ahead of his visit, Trump doubled-down on his earlier claim that mismanagement of Califonia's forests was to blame for the fires.

California wildfires: Number of missing leaps to 1,000 as death toll rises to 74 ahead of Trump visit
At least 71 people are confirmed to have died in a catastrophic wildfire in northern California while a further 1,000 are still missing, officials have said. Authorities attributed the high death toll from the so-called Camp Fire, which erupted last Thursday in the drought-parched Sierra foothills 175 miles north of San Francisco, in part to the staggering speed with which the wind-whipped flames raced with little warning through Paradise, a town of 27,000. Nearly 12,000 homes and buildings, including most of the town, were incinerated hours after the blaze erupted, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (Cal Fire) has said.
