Dozens of people have been confirmed dead in the wildfire that turned the Northern California town of Paradise and surrounding areas into "hell on earth," resulting in the most destructive blaze in state history.

The Butte County wildfire has burned an area that's four times the size of San Francisco. Thousands of structures have been destroyed by the blaze, most of them homes.

"Honestly, it looks like Armageddon," was how one state fire official described it.
