GRIDLEY, Calif.—In this Northern California town near where the deadliest wildfire of 2020 is still burning, ash fell from the sky Monday, and the smoke was so thick that it was difficult to see more than half a mile.
Fourteen people are reported dead in the North Complex Fire, one of 87 large blazes that have burned more than 4.6 million acres in 10 states, according to the National Interagency Fire Center. There have been a total of at least 35 fatalities so far, as an area bigger than the state of Connecticut has burned.
