(AP) A Northern California sheriff says no additional remains were found Monday, but the wildfire’s death toll rose to 88 after investigators determined that three separate sets of human remains contained remains for more than one person.

Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea said Monday that 203 names remain on the list of those unaccounted for after the Camp Fire swept through the rural area 140 miles north of San Francisco.

The blaze that ignited Nov. 8 destroyed more than 13,000 homes.

Officials said the blaze was fully contained Sunday.
