REDDING, Calif. (AP) - Authorities have found a body inside the perimeter of a wildfire that destroyed 30 homes and forced the evacuation of 300 others in Northern California.
State fire spokesman Mike Witesman says Shasta County sheriff's deputies discovered the body while checking a home in the community of Igo.
The coroner's office identified the man as 56-year-old Brian Stanley Henry.
The Clover Fire broke out Monday afternoon in the community of Happy Valley, about 150 miles north of Sacramento. Winds sent it spreading at 500 acres an hour. Residents were given just minutes to grab their belongings and leave.
The fire burned nearly 11 square miles. Cooler weather has helped firefighters contain 40 percent of the blaze.
