‘We Need Hundreds’: Fire Victims’ Families Urged To Give DNA

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) – Authorities are using a rapid DNA test that produces results in just two hours to help identify the scores of people killed by the Camp Fire. The company ANDE is donating the technology. Relatives of missing people can provide DNA samples via cheek swabs. But not enough people have been coming forward – only about 60 at last count. Company spokeswoman Annette Mattern says hundreds of samples are needed. The death toll nearly two weeks after the inferno stands at 79, with about 700 people unaccounted for.
